Office owners across the country are adding various features to try to lure more people inside. But one 17-story building in Chicago's former meatpacking district is attracting some of the world's best professional athletes, A-list entertainers and two former U.S. presidents with a unique perk: its basketball court.

As they planned the building at 167 N. Green St. a few years ago, Chicago developers Shapack Partners and Focus, and investor Walton Street Capital, decided to set aside the entire top floor for hotel-style amenities such as an outdoor terrace and flower garden, cafe, drawing and sitting rooms as well as a catering kitchen.

But the centerpiece is the glass-enclosed basketball court with sweeping views of the city’s skyline, a building feature that unexpectedly has become a must-see practice venue for NBA teams in town to play the Chicago Bulls.

Teams including the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers, and college basketball’s Duke Blue Devils, have held practices and shoot-around sessions in the office building 1½ miles east of the Bulls’ United Center arena.

No slam dunk at the time, the developers’ unique vision for the top floor has succeeded in luring NBA players such as Stephen Curry, Nikola Jokic and Giannis Antetokounmpo on nights and weekends to shoot hoops with their teams.
