CHICAGO, Oct. 1, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged financing for a four-building office and retail portfolio totaling 168,206 square feet in Chicago’s Fulton Market District.

Originally built in the early 1900s, the four properties were all extensively renovated and modernized in 2017 to 2018 and most recently between 2020 and 2021. The portfolio consists of 900 W. Randolph St. (or 159 N. Sangamon), 936 and 939 W. Fulton St. and 312 N. Carpenter St. Anchor tenants at the properties include Vital Proteins, iCrossing and Spaces, as well as Top Chef-led eatery Rose Mary.

Standing at the epicenter of Chicago’s West Loop transformation, Fulton Market has solidified itself as one of the most sought-after urban neighborhoods in the nation. The properties boast a WalkScore® of 99 and are centrally positioned within Fulton Market with frontage along the neighborhood’s most prominent corridors, including “Restaurant Row.” In addition to access to the neighborhood’s retail shops, nightlife, cultural and entertainment options, the properties are also minutes to the Morgan Station CTA “L” stop, which connects Fulton Market to the Central Loop.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the property owner was led by Senior Managing Director Anthony Fertitta, Director Lucas Borges and Associate Warren Johnson.
