Starbucks Signs First Retail Lease at Parkline Chicago

Starbucks Corporation has leased 2,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor of Moceri + Roszak’s newest building, Parkline Chicago, in the Loop. The specialty coffee retailer has signed on at the 214-unit rental/condominium tower’s first retail tenant.

“This will be a wonderful amenity for our residents and their guests, as well as an asset to the numerous downtown office employees, tourists and others who pass this intersection daily,” said Thomas Roszak, partner of Moceri + Roszak. 

Slated to open in September, the Parkline Starbucks will offer outdoor seating along Wabash Avenue along with an indoor café.

Along with the Starbucks store, a 1,000-square-foot retail space is under consideration for lease, while 3,400 square feet of ground-floor space remains available and can be custom divided and fitted for multiple uses. Baum Realty Group’s Allen Joffe and Doug Renner are handling the leasing.
