Members Only: Tour the Willis Tower Transformation
This members-only tour will take you behind-the-scenes of Willis Tower’s ongoing restorative transformation project. See plans for new tenant amenity spaces and hear from key players involved in the project.
The iconic Willis Tower, a 110-story urban destination and state-of-the-art workplace, is being transformed from street to sky through a more than a half billion dollar renovation plan that is currently underway. The transformation project will bring 300,000 square feet of new retail, dining and entertainment space—including Catalog, a five-story immersive neighborhood experience—as well as 125,000 square feet of tenant-exclusive amenities and a 30,000-square-foot outdoor deck and garden.
David Moore, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Director at EQ Office, and Todd Heiser, one of Gensler's lead architects on the project, will share their vision for Willis Tower and lead a tour through the new tenant amenity spaces in the building. You'll also have a chance to see a new, large-scale architectural model of Willis Tower, which shows in detail what the building will look like post-renovation. Mix and mingle with other CAC members over light appetizers and cocktails, all included in the ticket price.
Note: This event is intended for members only. Memberships start at $80.
