Zeller has awarded Colliers International Chicago the exclusive office leasing assignment for 311 South Wacker in Chicago. Colliers’ new head of downtown agency leasing, Michael Lirtzman, and vice president, Marina Zelenkova, will spearhead efforts.
“We were looking for a leasing team with vast experience and one that understands how to solve for the unique problems we’re facing in today’s complex environment,” said Zeller’s CEO, Bob Six. “Colliers is an industry leader with an outstanding local team that consistently nets positive results on behalf of its clients, so it was an easy decision to make.”
Soaring almost 1,000 feet above Wacker Drive, 311 South Wacker is a 65-story, 1.3-million-square-foot, Class A office tower renowned for its incredible panoramic views of Lake Michigan, Grant Park and the Chicago River. Anchoring Chicago’s famed skyline with its illuminated crown, it is one of the tallest and most iconic buildings in the city. Closer to the ground, the property is also known for its five-story glass winter garden, outstanding amenities and grassy one-acre park.
For tenants seeking a prestigious yet convenient address, 311 South Wacker is an ideal choice, with its combination of breathtaking views and direct access to Chicago’s major expressways, Union Station, Ogilvie Transportation Center, LaSalle Street Station and the “L.” The building also offers an amenity-rich environment that includes a 24/7 fitness center, tenant lounge, full-service food options, executive parking, a dry cleaner and a state-of-the-art conference center.
Notable tenants include Freeborn & Peters, Thompson Reuters, Attorney’s Liability Assurance Society and Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd.
“This is a terrific opportunity for our team,” said Lirtzman. “311 South Wacker with its excellent location, impressive tenant roster and dedicated ownership team, is an outstanding addition to our portfolio.”
Colliers will immediately begin marketing the project with a significant focus on the 184,000 square feet of prime high-rise space that is available, as well as the eleven fully furnished, occupancy-ready spec suites. The building is currently 80 percent leased.
This is Colliers Chicago’s flagship agency leasing assignment and was secured by its new agency leasing team in the Chicago CBD. 311 South Wacker is LEED Certified Gold, WiredScore Platinum Certified and earned the BOMA 360 designation in 2019.
