BA Secures New Leasing Assignment with Historic One North LaSalle

Chicago, IL – Jeffrey A. Bernstein and Laurence B. Elbaum, Principals and Co-Founders, are pleased to announce that Bradford Allen has been appointed the exclusive leasing agent for One North LaSalle in the Chicago CBD.

One North LaSalle, a 47-story, 500,000-square-foot office tower, is a Chicago landmark and one of the city’s best surviving examples of the Art Deco movement that defined architecture of the 1920s. Its central location and storied history make it a prominent piece of Chicago’s Loop. In 2016, the building was renovated to include the addition of an outdoor terrace, fitness center, advanced conferencing facilities, and an upgraded tenant lounge. It is also one of the only dog-friendly buildings in the CBD. The property has been owned by Bridge Investment Group since 2018. Andy DeMoss, Senior Managing Director, Downtown Agency Leasing, will lead the leasing team.

“We’ve had our eye on One North LaSalle since it was acquired by Bridge a couple years ago. The floorplate size and tenant mix of high-quality professional and technology firms are a great complement to our experience, and we’re proud that ownership has entrusted us to lease their historic property. With its strong amenity package and eleven newly constructed spec suites ready to go, the building is situated to perform very well,” said DeMoss.
