If you’re thinking of renaming Maldre Plaza to something with a corporate name, then consider building a coporate empire with the name “Maldre”.

The various plaza names within Millennium Park is quite fitting given the segmented nature of the park. Don’t get me wrong. I love Millennium Park and it’s great that the city of Chicago took on such an enormous project to enhance this wonderful city especially considering the site was previously a big giant gaping hole in the ground (literally). However, when visiting Millennium Park, it has less of a real park feel given the zealous installation of sidewalks. Does Mayor Daley have a cousin in the sidewalk making business? I think so.
