Nonprofit Openlands Renews Longtime Tenancy

Bradford Allen’s Jonathan Seeley and Merrick Wells completed a lease extension on behalf of Openlands. The Chicago-based nonprofit signed a long-term lease extension to remain in its offices at Aspire Properties’ 25 E. Washington, where it’s one of the largest tenants. Openlands currently occupies 8,373 square feet and has been in the building for more than 20 years.

“This transaction was mutually beneficial for both parties, providing the opportunity for the long-standing relationship between Openlands and Aspire Properties to continue to thrive,” said Wells.

“In light of the fact we are in the middle of a pandemic, this renewal allowed Openlands to continue to focus on its core mission with minimal interruption,” added Seeley.

Founded in 1963 as a program of the Welfare Council of Metropolitan Chicago, Openlands is one of the oldest metropolitan conservation organizations in the nation, serving Northeastern Illinois and the surrounding region.
