Intralogistics Firm E80 Relocates U.S. Headquarters to River North

E80 Group is moving its U.S. headquarters to Chicago’s River North neighborhood from suburban Skokie, IL, according to the Chicago Business Journal. The Italy-based intralogistics solutions provider, which works with mainly food, beverage and tissue paper companies to streamline their manufacturing and distribution centers, has leased a full-floor, 15,400-square-foot space at 448 N. LaSalle.

The 12-story boutique office building’s amenities — which include a roof-deck, fitness center, bike room and tenant lounge as well as a meditation room, dog run and outdoor space with grills — were its key selling points, according to William Nelson, president of E80 Group.

Nelson told the Business Journal said he expects the building’s “best-in-class” amenities to boost the company’s workplace satisfaction.
