Iron Galaxy Studios, the largest independent video game developer in the Midwest, has signed a lease for 15,291 square feet of space at the National Building in Chicago’s Loop. The move to the National at 125 S. Clark Street, comes at the same time as Iron Galaxy celebrates their 10-year anniversary.
Iron Galaxy Studios delivers both home-built, original experiences and partners’ visions to all platforms. The studio has worked with some of the industry’s most notable products including Skyrim, Destiny, Call of Duty, Killer Instinct, Wreckateer and Divekick.
JLL managing director Corey Siegrist and vice president Jim Rose represented Iron Galaxy in the deal.
“This was a tremendous opportunity to partner with an incredibly creative client and what better way to help celebrate Iron Galaxy’s important milestone than moving to one of the most vibrant and bustling areas in downtown Chicago,” said Siegrist. “We are excited to see the Iron Galaxy team move into one of the Loop’s most highly amenitized buildings that will provide an exceptional experience for their employees.”
The National, a 580,000-square-foot building, was built in 1907 by D.H. Burnham & Company. The landmark recently underwent an extensive redevelopment and now features highly coveted modern office space and top-of-the-market amenities including a tenant lounge/bar, outdoor terrace, gym and conference center. The ground floor features Revival Food Hall, a 24,000-square-foot food collective, which boasts 15 fast-casual cuisines from many of Chicago’s favorite neighborhood restaurants in a grab-and-go setting—a completely unique offering among Chicago office environments.
“From concept to execution Iron Galaxy is a vision that began in my hometown of Chicago and continues to grow here,” said Iron Galaxy founder, Dave Lang. “I’m extremely proud of my team and all that we have achieved in our 10 years. The National Building is the perfect place for the next chapter of growth and the many projects that lie ahead.”
