PR firm Edelman seeks to find a subtenant for 28,000 square feet at 111 N. Canal St. in downtown Chicago

HERE Technologies, Edelman Put 120K SF Up for Sublease 

As Boeing relocates its headquarters and looks to shrink its footprint in the West Loop office building it owns, the property’s second-largest tenant and a prominent new one next door are trying to unload space as well, reported Crain’s Chicago Business

Adding to a recent uptick in downtown sublease space, Here Technologies last month began marketing 95,000 square feet in the Boeing Building at 425 W. Randolph St. to new users. That’s in addition to 44,000 square feet it has tried to sublease since before the pandemic. 

Next door, public relations firm Edelman is offering 28,000 square feet—nearly a third of its space—at Sterling Bay’s 111 N. Canal St. for sublease just six months after moving into the building. The 111 N. Canal space represents a sharp downsize from the 170,000 square feet Edelman previously leased at the Aon Center in the East Loop, Crain’s reported.
