Sterling Bay hires Joy Jordan to market Lincoln Yards to office users

Sterling Bay has lured Joy Jordan away from the brokerage she helped found, The Telos Group, to oversee office leasing at the developer’s megaproject, Lincoln Yards. She comes aboard as executive vice president of leasing.

Lincoln Yards—the $6 billion development on over 50 acres that that will stitch together Lincoln Park and Bucktown at the North Branch—received the green light from the city of Chicago in April. Jordan’s first task will be to bring tenants to the 1.3 million square feet of new, spec office space that Sterling Bay plans to erect near the current offices of C.H. Robinson. She will also work on some of the developer’s projects in the Fulton Market District.

At Telos, Jordan was instrumental in over 700,000 square feet of leasing transactions including the lease up of 20 N. Wacker, 180 N. LaSalle and 20 S. Clark. She and her team earned the Greater Chicago Food Depository Office Representative Broker of the Year Award in 2012, 2013 and 2018 making her one of the youngest women in the industry to win such an award.

Prior to her role with Telos Group, Jordan was previously a senior leasing associate at U.S. Equities Realty where she worked on the Willis Tower leasing tem during its turnaround. During her tenure at U.S. Equities, Jordan was a member of teams that leased more than 1.2 million square feet in 3.5 years.

Jordan is a board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters (co-chair of Big Bash 2014 and 2015), COLBA, CREW Chicago and an active contributor and supporter of the Lycée Français de Chicago (member of the Corporate Giving Committee). She earned a bachelor of arts degree in economics and French and a minor in finance from Loyola University Chicago.
