Time to dine and shop at the new Willis Tower complex
Two years ago, work on one of the most recognized buildings in the Chicago skyline, Willis Tower, (formerly the Sears Tower) began. The Catalog, now partially open to the public, is an inviting and interactive 300,000 square foot, 5-level public retail and entertainment annex that wraps around the base of Willis Tower and will eventually have a revamped and expanded Skydeck experience. Even though the project is still in progress, the large pink wall on Jackson Boulevard has now been transformed into a wall of glass that provides pedestrians the ability to look inside and feel more invited into Willis Tower. The concept behind Catalog, designed by the Chicago Office of Gensler, was to create a place for people to congregate around great food and entertainment. The name was chosen to honor the former tenant, Sears Roebuck and Company who built the tower back in 1973.
