C.H. Robinson Eyes Future Growth with Chicago Expansion

[ October 23, 2015   //   ]

C.H. Robinson has announced plans for a 207,000-square-foot build-to-suit office building located at 1511 West Webster in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Sterling Bay, which acquired the 4.18 acre site earlier this year, will serve as the developer and manage the property.
The construction of the three-story building will transform the former tannery site into the Chicago office headquarters for C.H. Robinson. C.H. Robinson has signed a 15-year lease for the entire property – a significant expansion from its current 160,000 square feet at 1840 N. Marcey Street. Occupancy is expected in late 2018.
“Over the past decade, Chicago has emerged as our largest center of employment, and one of our most important global markets,” said Pat Nolan, vice president at C.H. Robinson. “Chicago’s longstanding history as a multimodal transportation hub, its thriving tech industry, and its rich talent pool make it an ideal place for us to do business. We look forward to continued growth in Chicago in the years to come.”
