Children's Hospital Leases Playboy Headquarters For Expansion

Posted: Updated:

Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital has chosen an unexpected, historic Chicago building for their planned expansion in Streeterville.

Crain's Chicago reports that the hospital is subleasing the old Playboy headquarters, the 15th and 16th floors in 680 N. Lake Shore Drive, from the publishing company.

The hospital plans to use the space to house their foundation, and their finance and legal departments, the Chicago Tribune reports. The hospital itself is planning to move from its Lincoln Park facility to 225 E. Chicago Ave. in June.

Playboy Enterprises Inc. participates in the hospital's matching gifts fundraising program. The company put the Streeterville headquarters up for lease in 2010, in advance of a planned move to Los Angeles April 30.
