The Chicago Tribune has reported on National Louis University’s purchase of part of the historic building known as the Gage Building, located at 18/28 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. NLU has acquired 126,000 square feet of the 177,000-square foot, 12-story structure, including a portion of the first floor.
As the Tribune’s Ryan Ori reported, NLU will move its Kendall College culinary and hospitality students to the new building from its Goose Island campus. Students from NLU’s growing Undergraduate College are expected to also have classroom space at the new building.
The article noted that when Kendall students start at the new building, expected in 2020, they will be located in the heart of Chicago’s tourism and restaurant scene. The new location is just one block from the existing Chicago campus, which will remain in operation. Both campuses are well-served by public transportation.
