JLL Arranges Lease for New Restaurant Concept at Marina City

Firm secures Katana Chicago in 13,000 square foot space

CHICAGO, Sept. 14, 2015 – JLL today announced that Katana Chicago has signed a lease for 13,000 square feet at Marina City, located at 333 N. Dearborn Street, Chicago, Illinois. Katana will transform the current Bin 36 space into their restaurant and lounge, set to open in Summer 2016.

JLL Vice Presidents Peter Caruso and Shanna Athas represented the landlord, and David Goldberg of Conlon Commercial represented Innovative Dining Group in the transaction.

“The Marina City space is an incredible fit for the new-to-market concept, and puts Katana Chicago two blocks away from 23 million square feet of offices, 5,200 hotel rooms and 5,400 residences. Those kinds of demographics are hard to match,” said Caruso.
