Sterling Bay Secures Renewals from Two Longtime Tenants
Longtime tenants Echo Global Logistics and VSA Partners have renewed their leases at Sterling Bay’s 600 W Chicago in River West. A tenant since 2005, Echo Global will remain in 185,000 square feet at the property, while 14-year tenant VSA restructured and rightsized its lease to 25,000 square feet.
“600 W Chicago offers modern workspaces that meet the needs of today’s 24/7, tech-centric tenants,” said Andy Gloor, CEO of Sterling Bay. “The building’s lease restructures with Echo Global Logistics and VSA Partners demonstrate that best-in-class office product that’s located in desirable, vibrant neighborhoods like River West remains in high demand, even in a post-COVID world.”
JLL’s Andrea VanGelder, Kellen Monti, Matt Carolan and Paul Giannopulos represented Echo Global Logistics. CBRE’s Steven Livaditis and Jon Milonas represented VSA Partners’ agreement. In both transactions, Russ Cora and Austin Lusson represented Sterling Bay in-house.
