Farewell John Hancock Center — Hello 875 N. Michigan Ave.?

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/so/soj7inaty496r6oa.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><em><p>The John Hancock Center is getting a name change, nearly a decade after another of Chicago&rsquo;s most beloved skyscrapers &mdash; the Sears Tower &mdash; switched identities and caused a civic uproar.
Owners of the 100-story John Hancock Center said the building’s namesake, the insurance company that built the tower almost five decades ago, asked that its name and logos throughout the building’s interior be removed immediately.

Until the owners of the building, Chicago-based developer Hearn Co., find interested buyers for its naming rights, the iconic landmark tower will be known simply by its address, 875 N. Michigan Ave.
