Google begins building conversion 

Demolition of the exterior and atrium of the Thompson Center has begun as Google’s plans to convert the former state government building into its Chicago headquarters progresses. Crews used excavators to tear off lower exterior portions of the building, marking an unofficial start to Google’s $280 million renovations of the 17-story building. Google bought the 39-year-old building, which many called an “eyesore,” for $105 million in 2022.
