Cohen & Company opened an expanded office location at the John Buck Company’s 151 N. Franklin Street. The firm is taking approximately 4,700 square feet in its new office space, a significant expansion from the original office location launched in January 2018.
The move into the 35-story, Class A office building accommodates Cohen & Company’s increase in headcount from two to fifteen employees over the firm’s first year in Chicago and allows for anticipated growth over the next several years.
“We continue to invest in dynamic, energetic cities that fit our core beliefs and allow us to invest in talent,” said Randy Myeroff, Cohen & Company CEO. “The response to our firm in our first year in Chicago has been tremendous. As the office grows, our presence in Chicago affords us the opportunity to take advantage of the robust demand in the market for our unique service offerings.”
Headquartered in Cleveland, Cohen & Company is a professional services firm offering a full range of accounting, tax and consulting services to clients throughout the U.S. and worldwide. The company opened a Chicago office in January 2018 after merging with Arthur Bell CPAs.
Post-merger, Cohen & Company’s Chicago operations had been housed at 101 N. Wacker Drive. Other tenants at their new home, 151 N. Franklin Street, include the namesake tenant, CNA Financial, which occupies around 300,000 square feet of the tower’s total 807,355 square feet. Social media giant Facebook recently leased 263,000 square feet while law, healthcare and consulting firm, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, leased 11,000 square feet in November.
