  • The landmark office tower at 360 N. Michigan is for sale and could sell for more than $40 million or about $153 per square foot. Nearly all tenants have moved out of the former Crain’s Communications Building, enticing hotel developers to purchase the property and renovate the 21-story property into a high-end hotel along the Chicago River.
  • The “Focus” section of this week’s Crain’s Chicago Business centered on social marketing, and Crain’s asked readers to nominate the Chicago organizations they believe do the best job of using social media to communicate with customers, promote products/services and find new audiences. We’re proud to share that Crain’s selected The Elevator Speech as the “Best Use of Blog” in Chicago! Crain’s readers can vote for their favorite use of social media, and you can vote for The Elevator Speech here.
