Delaware Building hits market, could be redeveloped

The owners of a landmark Loop office building are looking to sell after seizing the building through foreclosure last year. A venture led by attorney Steven DeGraff picked up the 145-year-old Delaware Building at 36 West Randolph Street in March 2018 and now has hired CBRE to market it. The owners already have been approached by potential buyers wanting to turn it into shared offices or micro-apartments, they said. A popular McDonald’s has 50 years left on a 99-year lease for the building’s first two floors. [Crain’s]
