Skender Completes Work on Sterling Bay’s 345 N. Morgan

Skender has completed 345 N. Morgan, a 200,000-square-foot boutique office and retail building in Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood. Skender acted as general contractor in constructing the new building, developed by Sterling Bay.  

The building is already 85% leased with tenants expected to start occupying in March 2023. Skender is also building out five floors of tenant interiors, including four floors for supply chain management firm HAVI Group and one  for office furniture designer/manufacturer Allsteel. 

“The Skender team was proud to work with Sterling Bay, JLL Construction and Eckenhoff Saunders Architects on this beautiful building,” said Justin Brown, president & CEO, Skender. “So much hard work, effort and collaborative communication went into the completion of this project, and we are excited for this new Fulton Market cornerstone to become a home away from home for all the tenants who will soon be moving in and making the space their own.”
