Allianz, Manulife Investment Management select Transwestern to lease 191 N. Wacker Drive

Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) has been selected by Allianz Real Estate—acting on behalf of Allianz group of companies and Manulife Investment Management—to provide exclusive leasing services for 191 N. Wacker Drive, a 37-story, 733,759-square-foot, Class A office building located in Chicago’s West Loop submarket.

TRS senior vice presidents Katie Steele and Kathleen Bertrand and Midwest president Mike Watts will provide leasing services on behalf of the owner.

“This building has always performed very well, and we are excited for the opportunity to continue driving leasing momentum on behalf of Manulife Investment Management and Allianz Real Estate,” said Watts. “Transwestern’s creative approach complements ownership’s overall objectives for the building.”

The building is 96 percent leased but will have a 100,000-square-foot block of availability in 2022. These high-rise floors offer expansive views of the Chicago River and cityscape. In 2017, ownership completed significant building upgrades to the lobby, tenant lounge, conference center and mechanicals. The property also offers 150 parking spaces.

Developed by Hines in 2002, 191 N. Wacker is within walking distance to the Riverwalk, the River North entertainment and dining district and both the Clark/Lake and Washington/Wells “L” stations, as well as Ogilvie Transportation Center and Union Station.
