Jones Lang LaSalle Seeks $111 Million Redevelopment and Construction Loan for Suburban Chicago Mall

Enclosed mall to be transformed into open-air mixed use specialty center

MOUNT PROSPECT, IL, Feb. 9, 2009 — The Real Estate Investment Banking team of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets Group is seeking to secure capitalization in excess of $111 million on behalf of institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management—Global Real Assets and Casto Lifestyle Properties for the redevelopment of Randhurst Mall, located on a 100 acre site in Mount Prospect, Illinois.  The current enclosed mall will be transformed into Randhurst Village, an open-air mixed-use specialty center.
Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle Real Estate Investment Banking team on this assignment are Managing Directors Bart Steinfeld, Dave Hendrickson and Noble Carpenter, and Vice President Vladimir Hrkac.
Randhurst Village will be a 1,071,370-square-foot lifestyle center situated on the former site of Randhurst mall, the first regional mall built in the Chicagoland area.  The village will be redeveloped by demolishing the core two-level interior mall structure, leaving the surrounding anchor stores and converting a portion of the existing basement into convenient parking for a new hotel.  The current retail anchor tenants will remain operational during the entire redevelopment period.  The mall will be replaced with an open lifestyle mixed-use center including office space and a hotel located above the new retail buildings.  Total parking for
the project will be 5,292 spaces.
The sponsors are seeking to close by April 15, 2009 on the construction loan, with vertical construction to begin in July of 2009 and retail construction to be completed by September, 2010.
