J.C. Anderson has completed a 32,576-square-foot spec suite build-out for Glenstar at 141 W. Jackson Boulevard (Chicago Board of Trade Building) in Chicago.
Located in Chicago’s Loop, the Chicago Board of Trade Building was built in 1930 and was designated a historic landmark in 1978. The building is widely known for its art deco architecture and state-of-the-art infrastructure. J.C. Anderson was hired to complete a build-out to the property’s spec suites on the 13th floor. Construction included renovating seven spec suites as well as the elevator lobby and common corridor. The spec suites range from 2,300 square feet up to 7,500 square feet and include conference rooms, private offices, huddle rooms, break rooms and open office areas.
“This is the third spec suite project J.C. Anderson has completed for Glenstar at this location, with more than 100,000 square feet completed from 2016 to early 2020,” said J.C. Anderson Project Executive Joe Maguire. “We value our repeat clients tremendously and it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Glenstar once again.”
The construction team for J.C. Anderson was led by Maguire, Project Manager Larry Regovic and Superintendent Jose Verduzco. MRSA Architects & Planners provided the architectural services.
“The biggest challenge on this project was the detailed and custom designs of the scope of work. MRSA brings a design element to each spec suite that makes them unique and custom, which adds a degree of difficulty with the material lead times and supply chains,” added Maguire. “None of the materials could be easily swapped with an alternate. Getting materials ordered and tracking them tightly helped us stay on top of the schedule and delivery date.”
