8,117 RSF at 180 N LaSalle Great for Creative or Tech Firms


180 N. LaSalle has been turning heads since it was built in 1971, with design by Illinois modernist Harry Weese. One year later, the Chicago Sun-Times named it Chicago’s best new building, and in 1999, renowned Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill redid the lobby and lower facade in a gorgeous neoclassical style. Following more recent renovations, the building is as creative as ever, and this fully-furnished spec suite is one of the foremost downtown office spaces available.


The Space

Ideal for tenants looking for a plug-and-play space in the heart of the loop, this 21st-floor, fully-furnished spec suite combines storied history with a modern and creative atmosphere. The highly desirable floor plate comes with 5 glass-fronted offices or huddle rooms and 52 workstations, along with a reception area and collaborative dining space. The suite is currently built to accommodate 57 employees at an ample 142 SF per person, and the flexible workspaces and large kitchen are perfect for companies looking to cultivate a spirit of collaboration and innovation. With a clean, open plan, exposed concrete, and classic wood details, as well as stunning views of the Loop in all directions, this is a beautiful place to work. Take a tour with this interactive video to see for yourself!



The Building

Recent renovations to this Class A office building have refined and updated the classic design. The elegant main lobby combines neoclassical motifs with shifting digital imagery, and the fully-equipped conference center and cozy lounge ensure there’s a place to meet for every occasion. If you’re looking to avoid the Chicago weather, there’s no need to leave the building — retail on site includes Jimmy John’s, Starbucks, Fooda, and Farmer’s Fridge, as well as a bank, newsstand, and tailor, and the building’s fitness center is reserved exclusively for tenants and open 24/7.



Should you want to step outside, the location couldn’t be better. In the heart of the Central Loop, 180 N. LaSalle is across the street from the Thompson Center and just a few blocks from the Theatre and State Street shopping districts. It’s in close proximity to the bustling heart of Chicago, rubbing elbows with government buildings and the Financial District, as well as tech and creative companies in River North and the Merchandise Mart. With the Clark/Lake CTA stop across the street, an in-building bike room, and a 900-car parking garage nearby, travel anywhere in the city is effortless — but with the Chicago Riverwalk less than a block away, why not stay in the neighborhood? Do-Rite Donuts, Naansense, and Monk’s Pub are nearby for a cheap bite, and the area hosts some of Chicago’s best steakhouses, including Prime & Provisions, Chicago Cut Steakhouse, and Gilt Bar.


At 8,117 RSF, this fully-furnished spec suite is a great option for an up-and-coming creative or tech company looking for a convenient space in the heart of Chicago. If this sounds like the place for you, shoot us an email and grab this incredible property before it goes off the market!
