Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago Renews at 216 West Jackson

CHICAGO, IL (April 20, 2010) – The Chicago office of commercial real estate services firm Bradford Allen represented NAI Farbman, owners of 216 West Jackson Boulevard, in a 40,396-square-foot lease renewal and extension to the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago (JFMC).  
JFMC, one of the city’s most stable and dynamic non-profit organizations, occupies 23% of the 176,600-square-foot office building located in the West Loop submarket. As a result, the lease represents a stabilization in the long-term occupancy and financial health of the building.
Bradford Allen’s Principal and Co-President Jeffrey Bernstein represented ownership in the transaction. John Goodman, Rick Schuham and Eric Feinberg with Studley represented JMFC.

In November 2008, Detroit-based NAI Farbman awarded Bradford Allen the leasing and management assignment for 216 West Jackson Boulevard.
