Bulls Unveil $25M Practice Facility; No Progress With Entertainment Complex Tax Breaks
Published April 25, 2013
IN THE ZONE: In Chicago, Hal Dardick notes zoning in the area of the proposed facility "already allows the practice center, so no vote was taken" by the commission. The presentation the Bulls put on was "done as a courtesy to city officials." Reinsdorf said that the facility would "include new or improved features such as therapeutic pools, a larger court, nicer locker rooms and a video room." The "saw-toothed façade" on Wood Street will "feature architectural metal panels, glazing and wood." The north side of the building along Madison will "be mostly glass." A parking lot will "have 162 spaces, with 56 in a fenced-in secure area with gated-entrance for players and staff on the east side of the building, adjacent to the Pink Line train." They will "have outdoor courtyards and a second-level green roof terrace" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 4/25).
