REI will be the ground-floor tenant of the redeveloped Uline Arena, a Douglas Development representative revealed on Dec. 3.
Confirming a rumor that’s been floating around for at least a year, Douglas’ Paul Millstein told 6C’s Planning, Zoning and Environmental Committee that the project has started and a “deal is done with REI.” Though Millstein said the agreement had not been finalized, he was adamant that REI had committed to the project. REI confirmed with UrbanTurf that the company was in talks with Douglas.
