Name change?[edit]

I know that Richard J. had a big ego, but was it so big that this was named for him before his death in 1976? If not, the article should mention its original name. Unschool 22:14, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

I dunno about that. Talk to either Raime (talk · contribs) or WP:SKY, where the experts may know the answer.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 22:50, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
The original name of the building was the Chicago Civic Center, per its official site; it was renamed 7 days after Richard J. Daley's death in December 1976. I added the former name to the lead of the article. Cheers, Raime 15:40, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

New Pic?[edit]

I got a pic of the plaza after chicago lost it's bid, it's a pretty nice pic I think and it shows a little of how they decorated the plaza. Here's the link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Daleycenterolympicbiddecoration.jpg
