AADE Relocates HQ to Ivanhoe Cambridge’s 125 S. Wacker

CBRE recently represented the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) in an 18,511-square-foot headquarters lease at 125 S. Wacker Dr. in the Loop. The association currently occupies 17,000 square feet at 200 W. Madison, and will be moving to its new location in January of 2020.

Gregg Witt, SVP with CBRE, represented AADE in the transaction. CBRE SVP Sara Spicklemire, VP Kelsey Scheive and associate Kerry Middleton represented the landlord, a joint venture led by Ivanhoe Cambridge that recently embarked on a redevelopment of the 31-story tower.

AADE will take a full floor at 125 S. Wacker and implement a collaborative workspace plan. The association has more than 14,000 professional members.

“This is a great move for AADE, which will benefit from the improved space, layout and environment of the new location,” said Witt. “AADE will be in a place it can grow and thrive for years to come.”
