CHICAGO – Thresholds, a social service agency providing healthcare, housing, and hope for individuals struggling with mental illnesses, has inked a 8,800 square foot lease at 120 South LaSalle. The Chicago-based nonprofit will continue to operate at 4101 N. Ravenswood Ave and its locations across the city, and will use the new Central Loop location for their executive, finance, and development offices.
Bradford Allen Senior Managing Director Craig Nadborne and Managing Director Sameena Mustafa Basit represented Thresholds in the transaction. Kim Robare of Lincoln Property Group represented the landlord, Teachers Retirement System of Illinois.
“This transaction enabled Thresholds to move into a central location that will accommodate their near and long-term growth,” shared Basit. “120 South LaSalle was able to offer highly adaptable existing conditions and favorable lease terms.”
“We’ve noticed a trend among our nonprofit clients wanting to relocate their executive staff to downtown office buildings,” Nadborne added. “In addition to centralizing business operations, a CBD location offers greater visibility and easier access to donors and board members.”
“Thresholds is thrilled to move some of our team to a downtown location,” says Mark Ishaug, Thresholds CEO. “We look forward to being closer to many of our partners, donors, and board members, as well as providing better access for all of our program staff located throughout the City of Chicago, Blue Island, Kankakee, and McHenry County. Bradford Allen understands the needs of large nonprofit agencies, and it was a pleasure to work with them.”
