Joffrey Ballet to Get New Home

Classic Arts News   Joffrey Ballet to Get New Home
The Joffrey Ballet will move its headquarters to a condominium tower in downtown Chicago which will be completed in two years and renamed Joffrey Tower, the company announced.

The company will occupy two floors in the 32-story building at State and Randolph Streets, which will house administrative offices, seven rehearsal studios and a black-box theater.

The move has been encouraged by the Daley administration. William M. Daley, brother of the mayor and Joffrey's co-chairman, said, "Having a permanent home in the center of downtown Chicago is truly the next step toward establishing the Joffrey as a major Chicago institution."

The Joffrey is in good financial standing, with a $2.5 million reserve. It is not known how much the company will pay for the space, but it hopes to subsidize the move through fundraising, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The Joffrey's studios are presently housed at 17 N. State St., and its offices are located at 70 E. Lake St.
