Menkes welcomes The Second City to its new home at One York Street

TL;DR: 28,700 square feet on the third floor of the retail podium

I'm glad the Second City found a new home, but it'd be such a change from the previous Second City locations, being in a shiny new office tower, instead of slightly dank commercial buildings. The location in Chicago's Old Town is perfect for its vibe, in an area with a lot of bars and restaurants. I guess they're going to get more in-house food purchases now, though.

So they're not going to punch through the 3rd floor from Dollarama/HealthOne. We're going to have two "separate" 3rd floors.

That's going to be fun. People already get lost with 3rd and 5th. Now we'll have two 3rds and a 5th, all with different elevators and escalators.

I don't mind it - Just think of the food court and Second City being 2nd floor stores with a vertical interior circulation element.

It's all a result of Target pulling out though of course, the Third floor was designed to all be a single tenant.

Which Ikea could have filled but chose not to at the time, and now of course they're looking for a space downtown after the perfect location already passed them by.
