Wrapped Inside a Mystery at Willis
If you're not a believer in the once waning Wacker Drive cache and the predominance of longtime conservative “corporate” properties, you might expect the local appeal to be “vanishing in the fog.” Quite the contrary. There are $2B of developments and community enhancements slated for the area, led by Willis Tower’s renovations powered by Blackstone and EQ Office. From the outside only the demolition is visible. However, the exact renovations are still a bit shrouded in mystery.

If you’re lucky enough to visit—or spend time—on 33, be sure to check out the huge fitness club and three expansive restaurant/lounge areas.
