Sears Tower or Willis Tower

Discussion started on


It's been a while since I left Chicago, so I'm asking for help from BB's in Chicagoland. Do teens today still refer to the former Sears Tower as the Sears Tower, or has the name Willis Tower really caught on?

I don't know if this helps or not, but I write for a Commercial Real Estate publication, and I went back and checked when the name changed, which was July 2009.

I can't speak to teens, but in the industry it has been referred to as Willis Tower since then.

hope that helps.
