Chuck Talks to Michigan Avenue

It’s been a long time coming, but a couple of weeks ago we finally noticed that Charles Schwab’s new office on the Magnificent Mile is open next to the Walgreen’s in the Realtor Building.

It’s an interesting addition to the area by the river. And in light of the new and glittering presence of a huge Fidelity office virtually across the street at 401 North Michigan Avenue, makes us wonder if the character of that area is changing slightly.  Wouldn’t it be something if a bunch of different investment houses opened flashy storefronts in that area?  Of course, they’ll have to sort out their financial problems first.
