JLL Completes Lease Expansion for Conversant at 101 N. Wacker

New lease provides building’s largest tenant with room for future growth  


CHICAGO, Dec. 6, 2016 – On behalf of LaSalle Investment Management, JLL Agency Leasing experts today announced the expansion of Conversant® at 101 N. Wacker. The digital media company expanded its Chicago headquarters and now is the largest tenant occupying more than 105,000 square feet of space inside the 24-story office tower.

Executive Vice President Nikki Kern and Associate Kim Doyle led the JLL team on the deal on behalf of ownership. Vice President Mark Schumacher and Managing Director Josh Feldman with Cushman & Wakefield represented Conversant in the deal.

"Companies like Conversant desire a building where they have the flexibility to be creative and grow with their space," said Kern. "The ability to address future contiguous growth was the leading driver behind Conversant expanding at 101 N. Wacker."  

Conversant's headquarters, which is home to more than 500 employees, was recognized with a Chicago Creative Space Award in 2015 and featured in Chicago Tribune's Blue Sky Innovation and Chicago Inno's "Office Envy." The office, adorned with repurposed timber beams, exposed ceilings, industrial lighting and colorful furniture, also features more than 50 informal "scrum" areas for employees to connect and collaborate. 

"As we look to create an environment that fosters big ideas and brings our employees together, 101 N. Wacker is a place for us achieve that vision" said Janet Greenough, Vice President Global Real Estate & Corporate Services at Epsilon, Conversant's parent company. "We are committed to creating opportunities for top talent in Chicago, and we looked to 101 N. Wacker to represent our interests and deliver a result that met our needs now and in the future."   

Located at the nexus of Chicago's two most popular office submarkets – West Loop and River North – 101 N. Wacker features easy access to both Metra and CTA trains as well as breath-taking views through floor to ceiling windows and a variety of convenient on-site amenities. The building, which earned the 2011/2012 "Office Building of the Year" (TOBY) award in the Renovated Building category, is approximately 94 percent leased.
