Yesterday, the Main Post Office was auctioned to an unknown global company, International Property Developers North America. The company purchased the national historic building for a whopping $40 million, a far cry from the starting bid at $300,000. The building future is still unclear, the unknown developers have not stated what the old building will be converted into. Although, the company affirmed, “We are not prepared at this time to discuss our redevelopment plans, but we are looking forward to working with the mayor, the alderman and city staff to ensure the success of this project…to paraphrase Daniel Burnham, let me assure you we shall make no small plans.”With that said at least the developers have respect for Chicago visionary, Daniel Burnham. Here’s a video from the bid.
