Zell putting former Wilson HQ up for sale

The sale would also leave Equity Commonwealth with just one property in Chicago: 600 West Chicago, the 1.5-million-square-foot former Montgomery Ward catalog building on the Chicago River, home to Groupon and other startups.

This article has 1 other Chicago location (Show)

It's unclear how much the sale of 638,928 square feet at 8750 and 8770 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. will boost that total, though the REIT paid $97 million for the property in 2010 when previous management was bulking up its property ownership.
