US: MillerCoors picks out Chicago HQ site

By | 31 October 2008

MillerCoors has selected the location for its new headquarters in the city of Chicago.

The company, an alliance between SABMiller and Molson Coors in the US and Puerto Rico, said earlier this week that it has signed a 15-year lease agreement for nearly 130,000 square feet of office space at 250 S. Wacker Drive in downtown Chicago.

MillerCoors confirmed in July that it would base its new headquarters in the city. The majority of the nearly 400 employees set to be based out of the building will come from Miller Brewing's main office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Molson Coors' Golden, Colorado base.

The headquarters will house a majority of MillerCoors senior executives, as well as marketing, human resources, legal, finance, IT and communications divisions.

The site will be ready for occupancy in June and will join Milwaukee and Golden as "one of MillerCoors three major business locations", the company said.

"Milwaukee will always be the home of Miller beer, and Golden will always be the home of Coors beer," said MillerCoors' CEO, Leo Kiely.
