Cooley, an Am Law top 20 law firm based in Silicon Valley, has signed a new, 30,000-square-foot lease at Bank of America Tower at 110 North Wacker in Chicago. The state-of-the-art space will support the firm’s future growth and provide greater opportunities to collaborate with clients. Currently officing in co-working space, Cooley is expected to make the move Q2 2022.
“110 North Wacker not only offers tenants a premier office address, but also world-class building systems and telecommunications infrastructure to support every modern technology need,” said Riverside’s Executive Vice President Rafael Carreira. “The building is a perfect fit for Cooley’s tenancy while their space will be uniquely on brand.”
Developed by Howard Hughes Corporation and Riverside Investment & Development Company, 110 North Wacker is a 55-story, 1.5-million-square-foot Class A+ office tower and the city’s tallest office building to be delivered in three decades. Its 30-foot setback accentuates its verticality allowing for expansive views up and down the river and providing a unique architectural identity while its state-of-the-art health and wellness systems including Destination Dispatch elevator technology; Bluetooth enabled hands free turnstiles; thermal scanning for all entrants to the building; and enhanced, hospital grade air filtration, make it the most sophisticated and health-conscious building in the city.
Despite strong headwinds facing the Chicago office market in the last 18 months, 110 North Wacker continues to attract tenants seeking best-in-class office space with its design, wellness features, and amenities. Recent leases include HPS Capital Partners, Longshore Capital Partners, Chartwell Financial Advisory and SE Capital.
Cooley launched its Chicago office in May 2021.
