"Christmas came early to downtown Thursday when H&R Block announced it will build a new world headquarters and move at least 1,450 employees to the long-blighted South Loop area. A 500,000-square-foot office building is planned between Main and Walnut streets. The headquarters would tower over a seven-block entertainment district also announced for the area Thursday... Together, the two projects valued at $400 million are designed to erase a decades-long legacy of neglect left by a variety of failed redevelopment plans."
