Bradford Allen Increases Occupancy at 79 W. Monroe and 209 W. Jackson

CHICAGO –  Bradford Allen Realty Services is pleased to announce that Managing Director Andrew DeMoss has completed 23 lease transactions on behalf of Detroit based, Farbman Group over the past twelve months at 79 West Monroe and 209 West Jackson. Bradford Allen has brought the two buildings’ occupancies to 98% and 84%, respectively.

“Ownership’s ability to do quick, hassle free deals at a competitive price point has triggered our success at both buildings,” said DeMoss. “This same model helped us raise occupancy to 98% at 216 West Jackson, a former Farbman property, before it sold earlier last year.”

Most recently, digital marketing agency, Brickfish signed a 12,770 square foot lease to occupy the entire third floor at 209 West Jackson. Danny Nikitas, Konstantine Sepsis, and Doug Noble of MB Real Estate represented Brickfish in the transaction. 209 West Jackson is a 12-story, 143,000 square foot, brick clad masonry building distinguished by its granite-faced bronze-highlighted columns and multi-colored terrazzo lobby.

79 West Monroe, a 200,000 square foot, 13 story structure located at Monroe and Clark Streets, recognized for its exterior aesthetics and landmark weather bell, added 14 tenants to their roster in 2013. Earlier this week, Total Support Solutions signed a 12,300 square foot lease to occupy the entire fifth floor. The tenant was represented by Shawn Sullivan of Macklin Advisors.

“Andy’s comprehensive leasing and marketing efforts and direct outreach to the brokerage community has helped to significantly increase these building’s occupancies,” added Jeffrey Bernstein, principal and co-founder of Bradford Allen who leads the firm’s growing agency practice.

Bradford Allen was appointed leasing agent of 209 West Jackson in 2012 and 79 West Monroe in 2011.  DeMoss exclusively represents building ownership along with Bradford Allen Associate, Grace Casella.
