Calamos Investments Establishes Chicago Presence in Fulton Market

Global asset manager Calamos Investments has signed a multiyear lease for the top floors of Parkside Realty’s Fulton East development in the Fulton Market District. Lease terms weren’t disclosed; tenant and landlord were represented in-house.

Calamos’ new location will be an addition to its headquarters campus in Naperville, IL. The Chicago office will host up to 100 people, with flex space for some of the Calamos leadership team, employees, and clients, and will function as a central meeting and event space for Calamos’ growing businesses. 

“News that Calamos Investments, a leading global asset manager, is expanding into Chicago demonstrates Chicago’s strength as a major hub for finance, technology and global connectivity,” said Michael Fassnacht, Interim President & CEO, World Business Chicago.

Bob Wislow, CEO of Parkside Realty, said, “Our design decisions are validated when a global financial leader like Calamos recognizes the unique benefits provided by Fulton East.”
