13-Dec-12 Mayor Rahm Emanuel says a new Dow Chemical Company sales office at 353 North Clark will lead to hundreds of new jobs in Chicago over the next several years. Emanuel was in River North on Thursday to help Dow open its Midwest sales office with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Emanuel told Dow employees their company is a full member of the city of Chicago, a great corporate resident. I look forward to our continued work together. I look forward to all of you enjoying our city and you growing and our city growing together. I want to thank you and validate the strategy of the most important four-letter word in the English language, J-O-B-S.
We just love Chicago, said Liveris after giving the mayor a tour of the 18th floor offices. Its a great city. Its one thats building itself to its new future under the mayors leadership, an educated work force, a great entrepreneurial spirit. I actually even object to this notion that its Americas second city.
353 North Clark has been mostly leased even before it opened in 2009. The 44-story office tower was sold in 2010 to Tishman Speyer Properties L.P.
