In the same week that it was announced the Chicago Tribune would leave the Tribune Tower for Prudential Plaza, the Chicago Sun-Times moved out of its 350 N. Orleans home for a new office in the West Loop.
On Friday, the Chicago Tribune announced that it would be moving out of the Tribune Tower on Michigan Avenue after 93 years. In the second quarter of 2018, the newspaper plans to move into new offices at One Prudential Plaza for 137,137 square feet of space on the second, third, fourth 40th and 41st floors. The deal also includes rights for a Chicago Tribune sign on the exterior of the building.
Also on Friday and over the weekend, the Chicago Sun-Times finished moving out of their 10th floor office space at the Apparel Center building. The transition began after the newspaper was purchased by an investment group led by former Chicago Ald. Edwin Eisendrath, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The new “digital foward workspace” is located on the third floor of 30 N. Racine and was remodeled to accommodate both the Sun-Times and Chicago Reader operations. Answers Media, which was included in the purchase of the Sun-Times, was already an occupant of the West Loop building at the time of acquisition.
