Bradford Allen Completes Renewal for Illinois Action for Children

Chicago, IL – Bradford Allen is pleased to announce that Julie Lane has represented the non-profit, Illinois Action for Children in a lease renewal at 1340 S Damen Avenue in Chicago. The group will be staying in its current space of almost 40,000 square feet on the second floor for an additional five years.

Illinois Action for Children, a client of Julie’s for the last 15 years, works to create systems of early care and education to help strengthen families and communities. The group was founded in 1969 and serves over 150,000 children and families in Chicago each year. They work to ensure that families have access to high-quality opportunities promoting their safety, health, and happiness by ensuring that early care and educational programs are affordable and accessible. They also work with child care providers and early childhood educators to improve the quality of these programs.

“This building is ideally suited for the client’s needs,” according to Lane, “the large, wide open floor plates and the abundance of parking at the building really caters to large non-profits.” The building is also under new ownership which was an additional factor in the decision, “the new ownership has some exciting plans for rehabbing the building which was another reason ILAFC was ready to recommit to the building.”

1340 S Damen is a 193,000 square-foot Class B loft, office located in Pilsen. Other tenants in the building include Vitas Healthcare and Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.
