The Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority hosted a groundbreaking Nov. 16 for the McCormick Place Event Center. In addition to serving as DePaul University's home court for the men and women's basketball programs, it also is a venue for commencement ceremonies and guest lectures. Beyond DePaul, the 10,000-seat arena will host events for the entire Chicago community.
