The Wrigley Building, a fixture in Chicago’s skyline for nearly a century, will get a significant makeover, according to its new owners. Zeller Realty, a minority owner, says that the building’s two interior towers, the public plaza that separates them, and the ground-floor retail space will be renovated over the next three to five years. The owners will also seek landmark status for the building, a designation that could bring tax breaks.
