Colliers Chicago Markets 500 N. Michigan for Sale 

A foreign investment group has retained Colliers Chicago’s Office Capital Markets team of Alissa Adler and John Homsher, CCIM, to market 500 North Michigan, a 23-story office building on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, for sale. The 341,000 –square-foot tower was built in 1968 as the headquarters for Standard Oil of Indiana. 

Along with 321,000 square feet of office space, 500 North Michigan offers 20,000 square feet of high street retail. Tenants include Chick-Fil-A, Vans and Bank of America. It’s in a prime location directly across from the Intercontinental Hotel and adjacent to The Shops at North Bridge.  

Currently 500 North Michigan is 30% leased and primed for a significant re-positioning. The Colliers team expects interest from multifamily, senior living, hospitality, medical and/or traditional office investors.  

“The building’s design with small floorplates lends itself to adaptive re-use,” said Adler. “A strategic, multi-faceted renovation program could attract a diverse group of investors.”
