CHICAGO (CBS) — The American Medical Association has just moved its main headquarters, with encouragement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel. But, the physicians’ group has only moved a matter of blocks, reports WBBM Political Editor Craig Dellimore.

The AMA has been headquartered in Chicago for a hundred years and its move to 330 North Wabash in what used to be the IBM building and was the last building designed by renowned architect Mies Van Der Rohe.

Chief Executive Officer James Madara says architects tell him the new digs are in an architecturally classy area.

“Marina City, AMA Plaza, Trump International Tower, the Wrigley Building and the Tribune all in a row. And what theses architects pointed out to me is probably no other city in the world has five contiguous buildings of this magnitude,” said Madara.

The new building is known as AMA Plaza.
