Dayton Street Partners has signed Ardmore Roderick to a 12,700-square-foot headquarters lease, occupying the entire third and fourth floors at 1500 West Carroll Avenue in Chicago’s burgeoning Fulton Market West.
Dayton Street recently completed a $4 million renovation campaign at the six-story, 38,000-square-foot loft office building. Improvements include new exterior windows, new bathrooms, a new HVAC system, new lighting and refreshed stairwells. The Chicago-based developer also added a modern lobby, rooftop deck with skyline views, a bicycle garage and parking for 42 cars.
Ardmore is a civil engineering firm providing design engineering, construction inspection and construction management, program management, structural engineering, subsurface utility engineering and survey work. The firm joins Via Tecknik, Limitless Coffee, Neato Agency and Breather who have recently signed leases in the building.
“Fulton Market West is quickly becoming a go-to office destination,” said Howard Wedren, principal at Dayton Street. “It’s an easily accessible location with direct access to Chicago’s hottest after-work spots and restaurants.”
Dayton Street was represented by JLL’s Mike Curran and Mark Georgas. In last two years, Dayton Street acquired and redeveloped nearby properties 2501 West Fulton, 2101 West Carroll Avenue and 2137 Walnut Street. Dayton Street also purchased vacant land at 1514 West Carroll—adjacent to 1500 West Carroll—for a build-to-suit opportunity up to 31,500 square feet.
