Bradford Allen Completes Relocation for Growing Firm at Civic Opera

CHICAGO – Bradford Allen Realty Services is pleased to announce that Managing Director Sameena Mustafa Basit has completed a new lease on behalf of Urban R2 Development Company (UR2) at 20 N. Wacker Drive in Chicago.

UR2 is a successful Chicago-based real estate development company which spearheaded a development  to construct a 223-unit apartment building at Washington and Des Plaines in the City’s West Loop. 

“Sameena completed a thorough analysis of our space options and guided us as our needs evolved,” said Gary Rosenberg of UR2. 

Bradford Allen’s Basit negotiated a lease relocation on behalf of UR2 which almost doubled the amount of its previous office space in River North. The new 41st floor offices feature impressive views and provide UR2 with adjacent space to meet the firm’s future requirements.

“UR2 is a dynamic and growing organization.  The new ownership of the Civic Opera building has invested significant capital to rejuvenate this landmark asset and create the atmosphere and amenities to accommodate the firm,” said Basit.

Matt Lerner with J.F. McKinney and Associates represented ownership in the lease transaction.
