The space located at 200 S. Wacker Dr., Chicago was selected after the selection committed performed a detailed analysis comparing locations and financial terms and performing other due diligence The committee determined it was in the best interest of the University and State to expand at the current site and that the significant benefits outweighed the additional cost of relocation. Expanding at the existing site will allow the DPI to build upon and synergize with its existing presence on the 4th floor, while also addressing social distancing. Building the DPI at one location will maximize operational efficiencies and continuity of programming, foster collaborations, as well as build upon and support brand awareness for the University of Illinois and the DPI. The fixed expansion opportunity only offered by the selected landlord would also eliminate many of the financial unknowns related to future expansion of an unknown size, timing, and cost.
