LINCOLNSHIRE, IL –– Dan Fernitz, Executive Managing Director of Bradford Allen Realty Services, is pleased to announce that the firm has recently completed a new lease with Wipfli LLP (Wipfli) for 33,431 square feet at Tri-State Office Center in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Bradford Allen was named the exclusive leasing agent for the five-building, 560,000 square foot office, Class A office complex upon the sale of the property back in September 2017.
A top 20 national accounting and consulting firm established in 1930, Wipfli has continued to keep pace with the growing Chicago market-needs by combining with five local firms in the last three years alone — expanding their breadth of services and geographic reach. The firm’s focus on a larger, unified Chicagoland presence resulted in a necessary combined office expansion. This new location at Tri-State is a consolidation of four northern Illinois Wipfli offices into 33,431 square feet on the third floor of the 100 building. Wipfli was represented locally by Gary Fazzio, Jon Springer and James Otto of CBRE in partnership with the Davidson Companies based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Matt Alexander, Managing Director, and Milan Gacanovic, Associate of Bradford Allen, as the new leasing agents, together with Jon Connor of Colliers, the former leasing agent, represented ownership in the transaction.
“Wipfli recognized the value of bringing their North Suburban teams to a single location,” said Dan Fernitz. “The new workspace will allow for stronger collaboration among the Wipfli staff and future growth within the complex. On-site amenities combined with building signage on Interstate 94 provide a very exciting long-term occupancy opportunity.”
Constructed between 1984 and 1989, Tri-State Office Center sits on 38 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds at the four-way interchange of the Tri-State Tollway (I-94) and Half Day Road (Route 22). The complex offers an unparalleled amenity center, including a conference center and a 135-seat auditorium in the 200 Building, along with a fitness center and deli in the 300 building. Ownership is in the early stages of completing $17 million worth of renovations and improvements to the property, including upgrades to the elevators, roofs, cooling towers, parking and common areas.
With more than 2,000 associates in 48 locations in the United States and two offices in India, Wipfli ranks among the top 20 accounting and business consulting firms in the nation. For over 88 years, Wipfli has provided private and publicly held companies with industry-focused assurance, accounting, tax and consulting services to help clients overcome their business challenges today and plan for tomorrow.
