History Hallway

Storied History

Since 1973, the Willis Tower has captivated Chicago and the world, holding the title of the tallest building for nearly 25 years. Today, it’s the 3rd largest tower in the nation with the best view in the United States.

Formerly called the Sears Tower, this architectural marvel was commissioned in 1969 by Sears Roebuck and Company, which was the largest retailer in the world at the time. They claimed the Sears Tower as their headquarters until 1989. The name of the building remained “The Sears Tower” until 2009, when it was purchased by London-based insurance broker, the Willis Group.

This remarkable skyscraper has an interesting history and compelling future, as the refined dining retail center, Catalog, and efforts to make the building more environmentally friendly continue to shape what’s next.
