The Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks are looking to renovate the area around the United Center with a new office building being added next to the stadium, and it may require moving an iconic landmark indoors.

The statue of Bulls superstar Michael Jordan currently sits in Lot H and can draw quite a crowd even when the team is not playing.

The Chicago Tribune reports the new plans would have the office building, which is to be built in that same parking lot, to feature the statue in the atrium at the entrance to a fan store.

The current proposition is for the statue to be moved to another outdoor location near the arena during construction before being placed back in its original spot, which will then be inside the new building.
