Pick your superlative.

It’s been called ‘The World’s Largest Green Building,” “The World’s Largest Commercial Building,” and “The World’s Largest Design Center.”

Add “The Wall Street Journal Deal of The Week” to the line of credits for The Chicago Merchandise Mart.

At 4.2 million square feet, this titan along the mighty Chicago River, once owned by the Kennedy clan, is now an industry leader doing The Green Thing (LEED-EB Silver) and the new home of Motora Mobility, a Google unit.

The Chicago Merchandise Mart is owned by Vornado Realty Trust of New York, one of the largest owners and managers of commercial real estate in the U.S. with a portfolio over 100 million square feet, primarily located in the New York and Washington, D.C. markets.

Built in 1930 by retail tycoon Marshall Field, Vornado bought the property in 1998 for $630 million from Joseph P. Kennedy Enterprises, the Kennedy family holding company. The Kennedys bought it in 1945. Here’s The Journal link:
