Cawley Team Closes Sale of Kinzie Corridor Mixed-Use
Cawley Chicago arranged the recent sale of 1640 W. Hubbard St. in Chicago’s Kinzie Corridor for an undisclosed sum. The facility consists of approximately 35,866 square feet of mixed-use space including flex, distribution, gallery and creative loft office.
The Cawley Chicago Urban Development team, consisting of principals Zach Pruitt and Frank Melchert alongside team members Brenten Blakeman and Nicholas Schaefer, represented the owner, Kaufman Jacobs, in this transaction.
“This deal is significant to the market and the neighborhood, respectively,” said Pruitt. “The sale of 1640 Hubbard reaffirms buyers are out in the market. Deals are happening, and the velocity in the Kinzie Corridor is right where it left off.”
