Mayor Lori Lightfoot was not happy with the secretive selection process that culminated in the choice of renowned Chicago architect Jeanne Gang to design the new $2.2 billion global terminal at O'Hare International Airport that will be the centerpiece of a massive expansion project.

But she apparently was not upset enough to order a do-over.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

On Thursday, the Lightfoot administration went ahead and awarded a $160 million contract to Gang-led Studio ORD.

It's a partnership that includes Solomon Cordwell Buenz; Corgan; Milhouse Engineering and Construction, and STL Architects.
