Leopardo Construction Begins Work on Raymond James Office

Leopardo Construction recently began work on a 50,000-square-foot interior renovation for global financial services company Raymond James.

The project comes as part of the company’s plan to consolidate its Chicago operations at 550 W. Washington and 222 S. Riverside, occupying 50,000 square feet across two floors at the 120 S. Riverside building, which also houses Leopardo’s Chicago office. The global financial services firm will relocate its regional office operations to the property, which is part of the 1.4 million-square-foot office complex in Chicago’s West Loop.  

Construction will entail a build-out of the entire seventh floor and half of the sixth floor, consisting of a high-end client center space, with a new café amenity space, media room, open office seating and private offices. Leopardo is working closely with Raymond James and Interior Architects to complete the project by the spring of 2024.
