OAK BROOK, Ill. — McDonald’s may be headed to the city’s West Loop.

Crain’s Chicago business reports McDonald’s is in advanced negotiations to move its corporate headquarters from Oak Brook to the city.

It would relocate to Oprah’s former Harpo Studios on Randolph Street which is more than 300,000 square feet.

This news comes nearly a year after McDonald’s backed out of a deal to move into the Prudential Towers downtown.

McDonald’s has not commented on the report.
