HR Management Group Renews in Downers Grove

NKF and JLL have arranged an 11,655-square-foot lease renewal and extension for HR Source at 3025 Highland Pkwy., a/k/a Highland Landmark II in Downers Grove, IL. The tenant, founded in 1898 and now providing human resources support to more than 1,200 member organizations, recently re-branded from The Management Association of Illinois.

Corey Chase, senior managing director with NKF, represented HR Source in negotiations. JLL’s Jeff Shay, Karla Harmon and Steve Flachbart represented ownership, The Estate of James Campbell Company LLC.

“HR Source has been a tenant at Highland Landmark II for several years and enjoys the amenities and location,” said Chase. “With its recent re-brand, we were able to negotiate a tenant improvement package to update the space to dovetail the new direction of the organization.”

Highland Landmark II is a 273,436-square-foot, Class A office property within the Highland Landmark office park, developed by Opus Group between 1998 and 2007.
