JLL secures $100M+ in capital for Fulton Market development

JLL Capital Markets has capitalized the development of a 278-unit, fully-amenitized apartment tower at 1400 Randolph Street in Chicago’s vibrant West Loop neighborhood and booming Fulton Market district.  

JLL represented the developer, Marquette Companies, to secure a pension fund equity partner and construction loan for the project. The senior financing was provided by Bank OZK. Seasoned industry leaders, Marquette partnered with Power Construction, a Chicago-based company that has operated for over 90 years, to build the development with an expected completion date of Spring 2022.

1400 Randolph Street is a 278-unit, 25-story, high-rise development boasting luxury apartment living, with clean lines, modern design, coworking spaces, a state-of-the-art fitness center, club room with a demonstration kitchen and pool to be located on the 18th floor. The remarkable views capture the renowned 12.77-acre Union Park and to the east, the iconic Chicago skyline.

Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood is home to the area’s most premiere and world-class shopping and night life. For the food lovers, Randolph Street is also known as “Chicago’s Restaurant Row” and touts Michelin-star restaurants and the city’s most vibrant dining scene. The development is also transit-friendly, just steps away from the L train Ashland Station, allowing direct access to The Loop or any corner of the city.

“I am grateful to JLL for tenaciously pursuing solutions on our behalf as well as the team at Bank OZK who stood with us to help make this project a reality,” said Darren Sloniger, president and CIO of Marquette Companies.

“It has been extraordinarily rewarding to represent Marquette in capitalizing this marquee project,” said JLL managing director, Matthew Schoenfeldt, who led the team representing the borrower. “Marquette, their institutional partner and Bank OZK have been steadfast in their commitment to 1400 Randolph, which is a testament to the fundamentally compelling concept.”
