Skender recently completed interior construction of the 85,000-square-foot headquarters for AbelsonTaylor, a Chicago-based health and wellness advertising agency and the fourth office tenant to lease space in the 2.8 million-square-foot Old Post Office building.
Located on the entire sixth floor of the north building and a portion of the fifth floor of the south building, the new space features private offices, open-office workstations, open-collaboration areas, conferencing, two café/social hubs, photography and editing rooms, storage and intermediate distribution frame (IDF) rooms. The floors are separated by just a few staircases, essentially functioning as a single office space spanning two floors.
The Telos Group and Cushman & Wakefield brokered AbelsonTaylor’s lease in February 2019. Serving as general contractor, Skender worked in collaboration with HED and Syska Hennessy Group to successfully complete the project.
Currently, Skender is the contractor for nearly 600,000 square feet of office space being constructed at the transforming Old Post Office, including projects for Walgreens, the first tenant to sign on with 200,000 square feet, and PepsiCo, which recently signed an eight-year, 192,000-square-foot lease in the building.
