Each week, The Elevator Speech summarizes a list of important news stories impacting our industry and the City of Chicago. Here are the news stories that caught our attention this week:

    Officials released a $155 million plan to refresh Navy Pier, including expanding the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and building a boutique hotel on the east side of the pier.

  • Jones Lang LaSalle’s Q2 report shows the national office market is continuing to grow, with more than 11 million square feet absorbed.
  • Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, which was filmed in downtown Chicago last summer, debuted in theaters this week and features several BOMA/Chicago building members, as noted in our recent blog post. The Chicago Tribune had a local commercial real estate appraiser inspect the “damage” to Chicago’s downtown buildings and commercial real estate market.
