CRE News: What We’re Reading Week of July 11

Each week, The Elevator Speech summarizes some of the key events, buildings, deals and dealmakers that shaped headlines. Here’s what caught our attention for the week of July 11th:

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel initiated plans to make approximately 100 city buildings more energy efficient. If implemented, the plan could potentially save between $4 and $5.6 million in annual utility bills.  Read this previous post on what office buildings need to do to remain LEED certified.
  • Zeller Realty Group is bringing Marilyn Monroe to Chicago.  Actually, a likeness of the Hollywood icon. The 26-foot tall public art sculpture of Marilyn in her classic “The Seven Year Itch” pose will be on display starting today at Pioneer Court on the Magnificent Mile.
