CBRE arranged an expansion for Flock Freight at 318 N Carpenter in Chicago's Fulton Market and a relocation for Kimball International

CBRE Completes Two Leases at Fulton Market Offices 

CBRE has completed two office leases within Murphy Development and Creek Lane Capital’s 318 N Carpenter in Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood. Existing tenant Flock Freight expanded by a full floor to bring its footprint to 31,377 square feet, while Kimball International leased 12,959 square feet on the building’s seventh floor. Kimball will relocate its current Wells Street showroom to the new space at 318 N Carpenter. 

Jon Cordell and Jason Houze of CBRE represented ownership. Scott Kulberg of Resolution Tenant Advisors represented Flock Freight in its expansion, while Andy Gooliak and Evan Djikas with Colliers represented Kimball. 

“It can’t be overstated how important quality space is in our current market to recruit and retain talent,” said Houze. “Employees want to come to the office if the space is a destination with access to colleagues and unique services not available in other places.”
