Blackstone’s EQ Office Reopens Willis Tower Lobby in Chicago

The reopened Wacker Drive lobby features an art installation by Jacob Hashimoto.

CHICAGO — EQ Office, an office company wholly owned by Blackstone, has reopened the Wacker Drive lobby at Willis Tower. The lobby features a new art installation by artist Jacob Hashimoto that hangs from the ceiling and spans 42 feet. The lobby transformation is part of the office tower’s $500 million renovation project. Now that the Wacker Drive lobby has reopened, the Adams Street lobby will be closing for redevelopment. The Franklin Street lobby will remain open. The renovation project will add more than 300,000 square feet of new retail, dining and entertainment space at the base of the tower as well as 150,000 square feet of new tenant amenity spaces and a 30,000-square-foot outdoor deck. More than 15,000 employees work at the 110-story Willis Tower.
