Chicago, IL – The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce continues to be a strong supporter of McCormick Place and the Lucas Museum. McCormick Place is a critical economic engine and the Lucas Museum will deliver long-term benefits for the people of Chicago.
In its first ten years, the museum is projected to create thousands of construction jobs and over 350 permanent jobs. Attracting nearing 1 million visitors to Chicago, the museum could bring $2 billion in spending and generate $120 million in new tax revenue.
Investing in a revitalized McCormick Place and Lucas Museum is a net positive for the city. We will gain a state-of-the-art cultural attraction and an improved convention center complex to enhance the lakefront and the economic climate of Chicago.
