Chicago Colleges Want to Sell Downtown Site

City Colleges of Chicago wants to sell its headquarters building across the street from Willis Tower and move office workers to campuses in Englewood and Bronzeville.

A sale would allow City Colleges to capitalize on a strong downtown Chicago commercial real estate market, bringing in a one-time cash windfall to the community college system.

The 14-story building, completed in 1904, is on West Jackson Boulevard, across the street from the city’s tallest building, the 110-story former Sears Tower.
