CHICAGO, IL — Bradford Allen is pleased to announce that Director Matthew Wright has completed a lease extension and expansion on behalf of Summit Expedited Logistics at 55 W. Monroe Street. The Chicago-based, full-service transportation provider has signed a long-term lease extension and will expand their offices on the 35th floor. The expansion provides Summit the space to accommodate their growing sales team, nearly tripling their occupancy from 6,378 square feet to 15,844 square feet. Situated on the curve of the building, the space features prominent views of Lake Michigan and a new entryway off of the elevator bank. Wright originally assisted in Summit’s move to the building via a sublease in 2018, on which the tenant still had term remaining. Andrea Saewitz and Matt Lerner of Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord in the transaction.
“I very much enjoyed working with the Summit team on this transaction and continue to be impressed with their rapid growth,” said Wright.
A 40-floor office building in Chicago’s CBD, 55 W. Monroe benefits from immediate proximity to public transit and popular eateries. Its amenities include 24-hour building security, a fitness center, a conference room, restaurants, banking, and a Dollop Coffee in the lobby. The building is Energy Star rated and LEED Gold certified for its best-in-class design.
