Bradford Allen completes 15,000 SF of new leasing at Edens Corporate Center

CHICAGO, IL — September 6, 2023 — Bradford Allen, a national full-service commercial real estate firm, today announced the leasing of 15,000 square feet at Edens Corporate Center in Northbrook, Illinois, a northern suburb of Chicago. Senior managing director Joel Berger represented ownership in an expansion for MyHome Protection and separate transactions that welcomed Cedar Pine Capital and Beyond Finance to the building.

Current tenant MyHome Protection—which originally took 6,614 square feet of space in November 2022—has completed a direct expansion and extension for 3,641 square feet, which brings its total to 10,255 square feet.

Cedar Pine Capital leased approximately 6,000 square feet of high-end space, citing the quality of the property, its curb appeal, an enticing new amenity center, and the strategic location as prime selling points. The deal was finalized in a direct transaction.

Beyond Finance was quick to seize a 5,500-square-foot move-in-ready suite. This swift move caters to their local executive team, who had previously commuted downtown. Securing the lease within just two weeks, Darryl Silverman of Colliers represented Beyond Finance.

“Since taking on representation of Edens Corporate Center two years ago, our focus has been offering tailored solutions that respond to unique tenant needs,” said Berger. “The quick leasing agreements we’ve secured with Cedar Pine Capital and Beyond Finance are prime examples. Whether it’s high-end, custom spaces or move-in-ready suites for a rapidly expanding business, our approach is resonating with tenants looking for something beyond the typical offerings in the North Suburban market.”

These leases emphasize Edens Corporate Center’s commitment to delivering a superior customer experience—blending urban convenience, curb appeal, and a prime location to meet the high standards of today’s premier businesses.
