Greenstone Brokers Deal for Timber Loft Offices in Lincoln Park

Greenstone Partners arranged the $6.7-million sale of a timber loft office building in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Managing partners Danny Spitz and Jason St. John represented the seller, R2 Companies, in the transaction at 2001 N. Clybourn Ave. The buyer was a West Coast-based private investor. 

“Lincoln Park benefits from one of the strongest demographic profiles in the Midwest,” said St. John. “Boutique neighborhood office buildings like 2001 North Clybourn will continue to benefit from increased leasing velocity. There’s been steady leasing activity at the property since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. This trend is further enhanced by the lack of competitive office product within Lincoln Park.” 

The 24,000-square-foot building is currently 97% occupied by a diverse mix of tenants operating innovative businesses and anchored by AMP Americas, a producer of 100% renewable, closed-loop, carbon-negative fuels. The property underwent a complete renovation in recent years
