New renderings have been revealed for the redevelopment of the Thompson Center at 100 W Randolph Street in The Loop.

A potential completion date has been revealed for the Thompson Center redevelopment at 100 W Randolph Street in The Loop. The massive building from 1985 was designed by famed architect Helmut Jahn, who fought for its preservation prior to his death when news of the structure’s sale first broke. This culminated with Google purchasing the structure last year for $105 million from The Prime Group who was originally selected by the state to buy the property for $70 million from a group of bids.
