Boeing Galleries were previously known as the "Exelon Galleries,"
the term informally used to describe the area also known as the "mid
level terraces" in the early planning stages of the Park. It was hoped
Exelon would contribute additional funds to develop the area but this
never happened. When the Park opened in July 2004, the mid level terraces
were wide, grass and gravel paths. When the Boeing Company moved its
headquarters to Chicago they contributed to Millennium Park by donating
$5 million to pave the terraces in granite and add sycamore trees,
creating an outdoor exhibition area. In recognition of this improvement,
and of the money donated, the area was renamed the Boeing Galleries.
