The Boston Store Building: Full-Floor Plug & Play Space in Matchless Location in the Heart of the Loop


Originally built 105 years ago as the Boston Store, this elegant landmark has been a fixture in the Loop through more than a century of development — and now, with a full renovation, it combines historical elegance with modern innovation and next-generation design.


The Space


Perfect for a tenant looking to attract the next generation of world-class employees, this plug-and-play office comes fully furnished with modern decor, vibrant furniture, artistic light fixtures, and a truly creative vibe. The sublease occupies the entire 13th floor and allows for 269 workstations, 8 private offices, 8 large and medium conference rooms, 13 huddle rooms, an 88-seat cafe, and a variety of other open spaces, smaller work rooms, and privacy pods. The abundance of work setups offers something for every type of employee, and the clean lines, beautiful fixtures, and exposed architectural elements make this office not only efficient but truly cool. Plenty of light and breathtaking views of the skyline and Millennium Park are available throughout the entire suite, thanks to the open plan and classic glass walls. At 52,940 SF, this floorplate translates into an expansive 1:197 employee to SF ratio.

In the recent renovation, the building added a brand new tenant fitness center and gorgeous rooftop deck and lounge. The lobby and entryway have been fully updated, and the building has 24/7 security services as well as after-hours keycard access. 1 N Dearborn is LEED Gold and Energy Star certified, but the building’s commitment to sustainability isn’t just structural — the new rooftop is home to organic gardens and beehives, and honey from these bees is shared with tenants.


The Location


Located in the heart of the Loop, 1 N Dearborn is a short walk from world-famous landmarks like the Art Institute, the Picasso, and Willis Tower. The building is steps away from every train line in Chicago and minutes from I-90, I-94, and I-290, making it one of the most accessible locations in the city. No matter where you’re going, you can get there fast.

At the southwest corner of Dearborn and Madison, the building also houses tenants like the Chicago Board of Education and Reid London House. There’s no shortage of dining options in the area: street-level retail in the building includes sweetgreen, Dos Toros, and Taylor Gourmet. Cheap bites like Sopraffina, Roti, Magnolia Bakery, and Shake Shack are a short walk away, as are more upscale options like Latinicity, The Dearborn, Trattoria No. 10, and the Cherry Circle Room. Bordering the State Street Corridor, Millennium Park, and the theater district, the building is central to the best of Chicago — retail, culture, and infrastructure.

The space comes fully furnished and is move-in ready at $39.00 Gross, with a remaining term through September 30th, 2026 or 2030. This is one of the coolest places on the market right now, and, in the heart of Chicago, it’s a great option for tenants who want to establish themselves as innovators with their finger on the pulse of the city.
