Bradford Allen Represents Ajinomoto in Lease Transaction in Itasca

CHICAGO – Bradford Allen Realty Services is pleased to announce that Senior Managing Director, Craig Nadborne has completed a lease expansion and extension on behalf of Ajinomoto. The company will be leasing an additional 7,159 square feet at 1300 North Arlington Heights Road where it currently occupies 13,476 square feet.

Ajinomoto is a Japanese food and chemical corporation and has been a client of Nadborne’s for over 20 years. The company is recognized as a global leader in amino-acid-based products for a variety of uses. Ajinomoto moved to 1300 North Arlington Heights Road back in 2012 from the O’Hare market where they still maintain an office. “Ajinomoto originally moved to this location because it provided first class office space at a competitive rental rate while still being close enough to O’Hare to be readily accessible for visitors,” according to Nadborne.

Ajinomoto’s expansion needs arose when it decided to relocate its New Jersey office to Chicago. “The high-end campus environment that Hamilton Lakes offers was the perfect place for the expansion. Ownership was very accommodating in helping structure this long term transaction,” said Nadborne. 1300 North Arlington Heights Road is a 108,000-square-foot Class A building that is part of the Hamilton Lakes Office Park. The complex, located just west of O’Hare Airport, is owned and managed by Hamilton Partners. The company will take occupancy of its additional space in February of 2017.
