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.
