As work continues on the mega-overhaul of Chicago’s former main post office, new tenants seem to be signing leases at a more regular pace. According to one of the more recent reports from the Chicago Tribune, the latest company that appears to be heading for 433 W. Van Buren Street is Chicago-based ad agency AbelsonTaylor.
As noted in the report, AbelsonTaylor will make the move from 33 W. Monroe by March 2020, at which point their new 15-year lease at The Old Post Office begins for a roughly 85,000 square foot space.
Back in June of last year, Walgreens announced a 200,000 square foot lease inside the building, and since then, activity has definitely picked up.
Oakbrook Terrace-based Ferrara Candy Co. also has plans to move into a 77,000 square foot office in the building and the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning will also move over from nearby Willis Tower as well.
It seems hard to believe but the building’s first tenants are already scheduled to move in by September and many of the building’s common amenities like an in-building fitness center, conference space, and various lounges are also nearing completion.
