The additional steps that Berger Asset Management has taken at the site include expanding the previously developed spec suites program as well as making structural/system upgrades in the building housing the tenant amenity center to improve health and safety features. In order to meet the demand for move in ready space, Berger Asset Management has delivered five spec suites ranging from 1,400 to 4,953 square feet.
The offering of spec suites is designed to give tenants the convenience and flexibility they are searching for in the “new normal” way of making a decision when choosing office space. Each suite has been fully built out and features private suite entrances, dedicated HVAC systems, ADA compliant bathrooms and kitchens, state of the art LED lighting with motion sensor technology.
The Concourse Chicago’s amenity center has been upgraded with operable windows to deliver fresh air to the space along with having i-Wave-R Air cleaning devices installed within all of the HVAC units. Continuing to follow CDC protocol, ownership has increased janitorial services and have added non-touch hand sanitizing stations and supplies of PPE for their tenants.
