Each week, The Elevator Speech summarizes news related to some of the key industry trends, buildings, deals and dealmakers that shaped headlines. Below are articles that caught our attention the week of September 24.

  • The Medinah Country Club in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago is hosting the Ryder Cup this week. The biennial golf competition between teams from Europe and the United States is considered a world-class event, attracting thousands of international guests that have an estimated economic impact of $130 million. For both the suburbs and the City of Chicago, the Ryder Cup is a chance to demonstrate its assets to a well-heeled crowd in hopes that they will return for business meetings or a full-fledged relocation. This week, some BOMA/Chicago building members have switched to red, white and blue lighting as a show of support for Team USA.
