Golub Capital Lists Wacker Drive Offices for Sublease

Golub Capital recently began marketing all of approximately 75,000 square feet that it occupies across five floors at 150 S. Wacker Dr. for sublease, reported Crain’s Chicago Business. However, the company, a tenant at 150 S. Wacker since 2006, plans to retain two floors for itself.  

If Golub can find a taker for the space, it would cut its downtown Chicago office footprint by nearly one-third, as the company also occupies about 53,000 square feet in the neighboring building at 100 S. Wacker Dr., Crain’s reported. CBIZ Gibraltar Real Estate is marketing the space on behalf of the firm. 

The listing pushes the amount of downtown Chicago office space available for sublease past eight million square feet, according to data from CBRE. That’s up from about six million square feet a year ago and 3.3 million square feet when the pandemic began.
