Tech Office + Chicago History = The Rookery

February 1, 2017

It’s not often we see a full floor available at the historic site of 209 S. LaSalle Street in Chicago (“The Rookery“). But the 4th floor is vacant, offering just under 25,000 rsf of white-boxed space ready to be designed. What sets this space apart is the 14′ ceiling height and light court, offering natural light from the exterior and interior of the building.

If the full floor doesn’t work, The Rookery is also rolling out spec suites that are ready built for immediate occupancy. Approximately 5,100 rsf is available on the 5th floor, offering two conference rooms, two private offices, a huddle room, an open work area and a kitchen. The space can accommodate 1 person/102 rsf (50 people). The space also offers elevator ID.

Designed by architect Daniel Burnham, and then modified by Frank Lloyd Wright, The Rookery stands as one of the most highly recognized addresses in Chicago. Amenities include the original library of Daniel Burnham, a bike room, and plenty of food options within a block walk (Potbelly, Starbucks, Phil Tadros’ Bow Truss Coffee and Revive Food Hall to name a few). Existing tenants include Interactive Brokers and ExactBid, among many others. With The Rookery being located in the Central Loop, access to all of Chicago’s public publication in a non-issue (the Metra stations are four blocks east and the El stops are a couple blocks in any direction).
