March Madness at 181 W. Madison in Chicago


MB Real Estate Services Inc. (MBRE), property manager of 181 W. Madison in Chicago, hosted a series of March Madness events this month for building tenants including a free throw contest, a bracket tournament and NCAA viewing parties.

The free throw contest was held in the lobby of the loop building last week, which featured an official NCAA referee, Randy Fox, as emcee for the event.

Tenants participated in a series of contests for more than $500 in prizes including an Apple watch, Beats by Dre headphones and a blue tooth speaker. Gino’s East Pizza & Brewery provided food and beverages. MBRE is also making use of the building’s media wall, comprised of 147 tile monitors, by showing games throughout the tournament.

MBRE leases and manages the 50-story, 952,559 square foot, Class A high-rise in downtown Chicago.
