Chicago Stock Exchange Stays Put at 440 S. LaSalle
Chicago, IL (May 7, 2014)  

Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. signed a long term renewal of approximately 33,000 square feet at 440 S. LaSalle. Lisa Davidson, Executive Managing Director and Rick Schuham, Executive Vice President and Co-Branch Manager of global commercial real estate services firm, Studley, engineered the lease for the company. Mark Gunderson and Mark Baby of J.F. McKinney represented the landlord.

According to Davidson, Chicago Stock Exchange is making significant changes to their space to create a more collaborative environment. The building is also undergoing major renovations with new amenities. “After negotiating with several properties and thoroughly investigating the market, staying in the building made the most sense for Chicago Stock Exchange,” said Davidson. “It enabled the organization to limit disruption for its workforce and was the most cost-effective option.”

John Kerin, CEO of Chicago Stock Exchange is pleased with the negotiation and says, “We are looking forward to reducing our footprint and creating a more efficient and collaborative work environment. The renovations will bring additional sunlight into the space and the consolidation will allow us to have all of our employees on one floor.”
