between Clark and Stockton Drive (approximately 1750 N. Clark).
New Yorkers Joseph Chetrit and Joseph Moinian and Skokie-based American Landmark Properties bought the 110-story building in 2004 for $840 million.
Crain’s Chicago predicted the tower would fetch $1.5 billion, but $1.3 billion is still a nice payday for the sellers.
Blackstone Group purchased the Willis Tower this weekend for $1.3 billion, reports the Wall St. Journal.
“We see great potential in further improving both the building’s retail operations and the tourist experience for one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Chicago,” Jacob Werner, a managing director in Blackstone’s real estate group, said in a Monday statement.
Blackstone’s purchase price of $1.3 billion is, according to Crain’s Chicago Business, set to become the highest ever paid for a U.S. office building outside Manhattan.
By a 44-5 vote, Chicago’s City Council set a minimum-wage target of $13 an hour, to be reached by the middle of 2019. The move comes after Illinois passed a nonbinding advisory last month that calls for the state to raise its minimum pay level to $10 by the start of next year.
The current minimum wage in Chicago and the rest of Illinois is $8.25.
Under the ordinance, the city’s minimum wage will rise to $10 by next July and go up in increments each summer thereafter.
It then will increase by 50 cents in July 2016 and another 50 cents in July 2017. The minimum wage would go up $1 in July 2018 and $1 in July 2019 to reach $13 an hour.
After that, annual increases would be pegged to the local consumer price index, with a limit of 2.5 percent, if the unemployment rate stays below 8.5 percent.

STAPLES open right down the street from my house, at 4610 N. Clark, 2 years ago. And I am in there at least once a month. There have been 3 occasions where a store manager was called. (No, I am not a complainer!) Twice, a printing order was ran wrong and once something rang up wrong at the check-out. All 3 times, Staples made it right and the manager apologized for the inconvenience. LOVE THAT STORE. I don’t expect stores to kiss my @#$. Just treat me and my money with some respect and eat your mistakes. Is that too much to ask?
The moral of the story – a friend fixed my Gateway in less than an hour. And I WON’T be buying anything from Best Buy ever again. As consumers, we must show our support with our money. Support Staples! Why didn’t I buy my laptop from Staples – I am sorry to say, in the emergency of the moment, I thought of Best Buy for electronics. My Staples here is usually understaffed, although the staff is great, it’s sort of a self-serve big box store.
