Uber may be the next technology behemoth to upend the real estate markets of a major American city.

According to the Chicago Sun Times: If Uber Technologies can follow through on its plans, it will become an anchor tenant in a downtown office building and potentially bring in thousands of jobs. A source close to the company said Thursday that it is examining locations that could accommodate as much as 450,000 square feet.

Uber’s space needs are connected to its Uber Freight operation, which is expanding. The company now has about 1,000 employees spread among several Chicago sites, according to the article.

Of course a lot may depend on Uber’s stock price, which has fluctuated since the company went public earlier this month. The stock tumbled after the IPO on May 10, but has since rebounded.
