Cawley Chicago has arranged the sale of a brick, steel and timber building in the West Loop

Cawley Chicago Closes Deal for Fulton Market Offices 

Cawley Chicago recently completed the sale of 451 N Racine Ave., a 16,350-square-foot, two-story brick, steel and timber building located on the northern border of Chicago’s Fulton Market. The property traded for $2,800,000. 

Managing principal Zach Pruitt and VP Nicholas Schaefer represented the private building owner, 1005 N California LLC in this transaction. Marco Federow with MK Asset Management represented the buyer, an advertising agency called The Times.  

“451 N Racine offered The Times a unique opportunity to occupy a newly renovated office on day one in Fulton Market, along with the ability to put their creative stamp on the remainder of the building for their cutting-edge advertising firm,” said Schaefer.
