Cour Pharma Expands at Illinois Science and Technology Park

Cour Pharmaceuticals signed a 14,000-square-foot expansion lease, growing the company’s life science and emergency biotechnology footprint within the Illinois Science and Technology Park in Skokie, IL. With the addition, Cour Pharmaceuticals now leases around 25,000 square feet in the park. CBRE’s David Saad represented Cour Pharma in the expansion. 

“This is an exciting expansion that is illustrative of the momentum we are seeing in this sector,” said Saad. “Chicago presents a plethora of desirable fundamentals that are tailor made for growth-stage life science companies.” 

The Illinois Science + Technology Park began as the former corporate headquarters of pharmaceutical giant G.D. Searle and has since created a community of scientists, inventors, and innovators. Upon completion of its redevelopment, the park will offer up to two million square feet of office and state-of-the-art facilities including chemistry and biology labs, CGMP facilities and clinical research labs.
