Stream Realty Named Leasing Agent for River North Offices

Stream Realty Partners’ Chicago office has been awarded the leasing of 620 N LaSalle, a newly renovated 80,000-square-foot Class A building in River North owned by an affiliate of Next Realty, LLC. The Stream Chicago office team of Adam Showalter, Patrick Russo and Jessica O’Hara will spearhead the leasing and marketing efforts.

Located on the corner of Ontario and LaSalle streets, the building was previously home to the Amsterdam-based company Spaces, as well as The Sports Authority (and its predecessor, Sportmart). The building currently is 100% vacant and immediately available for lease. 

“With space in the newly renovated building now available, Stream approached us with the idea to layer the traditional leasing model with the activation of their Rapid platform so Chicago start-ups and companies looking for short-term leases can now have the ability to secure space within 24-hours all online,” said Marc Blum with Next Realty.
