Humboldt Park Redevelopment Lands Its Biggest Tenant to Date
NuMat Technologies has signed a lease for around 62,000 square feet at the Terminal at 1334 N. Kostner Ave. in Humboldt Park on Chicago’s West Side, relocating later this year from its longtime home at the Illinois Science & Technology Park in Skokie, reportedCrain’s Chicago Business.
The new space will be close to three times larger than its current one. It also makes 10-year-old NuMat, a spinout from Northwestern University, the largest tenant to date to plant its flag at the Terminal. The $50-million redevelopment of a cluster of old Humboldt Park warehouses is led by Chicago developer IBT Group and Joe Mansueto, the billionaire founder of Morningstar.
CBRE EVP David Saad negotiated the Terminal lease on behalf of NuMat. Doug Hayes and Zach Pruitt of Cawley Chicago oversee leasing at the property.
