American Library Association Sells Chicago Headquarters Buildings

The two connected buildings are located on East Huron Street.

CHICAGO — American Library Association (ALA) has sold its headquarters buildings at 50 E. Huron St. and 40 E. Huron St. in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. Neither the buyer nor the sales price were disclosed. In spring 2020, ALA will move its office to Michigan Plaza at 225 N. Michigan Ave. Until then, ALA staff will continue to occupy the adjoined, 98,000-square-foot buildings on Huron. ALA says the move will provide it with modernized workspace and enhanced meeting space. Architecture firm Nelson is designing the new office buildout. ALA began occupying space at 50 E. Huron in 1963 before building an extension and opening 40 E. Huron in 1981. The two connected buildings have housed the association’s staff ever since.
