from the New York Times:
WILMINGTON, Del. — For decades, many of the nation’s biggest companies staked their futures far from the fraying downtowns of aging East Coast and Midwestern cities. One after another, they decamped for sprawling campuses in the suburbs and exurbs.
Now, corporate America is moving in the other direction.
In June, McDonald’s joined a long list of companies that are returning to downtown Chicago from suburbs like Oak Brook, Northfield and Schaumburg.
The reason that companies want
an urban and downtown-type haunt
is that the young mass
don’t want to see grass
(unless it’s baked in a croissant)
