Now, it’s possible that Groupon’s co-founders, Brad Keywell and Eric Lefkofsky, are planning to make a splashy Wrigley Building purchase for Lightbank, their private investment firm. But Groupon won’t be part of those plans. Lefkofsky declined to comment through a spokesman.A Groupon spokesman told WSJ that the company has plenty of room to expand at the Ward building, where it has a lease through 2017. The 90-year-old Wrigley Building is worth about $35 million to $45 million.
