Bulls Set To Formally Announce Plans For New Practice Facility
The Bulls and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel today are expected to announce that the team will build a new practice facility adjacent to United Center, "with completion expected in time for the 2014-2015 season." The building will be on Parking Lot J, east of the arena. The Bulls' planned move from Berto Center was first announced in June (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 11/16). The new facility is "expected to be about 55,000 square feet." An exact cost estimate is not available (CHICAGOBUSINESS.com, 11/16).
