The John Hancock Center’s name will change, the Chicago Tribune reported Monday.

The newspaper reports the 100-story building, named for the insurance company that built the tower, requested that its name and logos be taken down from inside the building “immediately.”

The building will be known as 875 N. Michigan Ave.—it’s address—until a new name is picked, the paper reported citing the building’s owner.

Stephen Hearn, president and CEO of Hearn Co., the company that owns the building, said he was sensitive to the city’s attachment to building names—like the how many residents refuse to refer to the Willis Tower as anything other than the Sears Tower.

“I want to put an identity on this property that everyone in Chicago can be proud of,” he told the newspaper.
