Transwestern Brokers New HQ for InnerWorkings

Transwestern Commercial Services (TCS) has brokered a 41,443-square-foot lease for InnerWorkings Inc.’s global headquarters at 203 N. LaSalle St. The company is relocating from 600 W. Chicago Ave.

A TCS team of SVP Jeff Dowdell, EVP Eric Myers and VP William Briggs provided office leasing services on behalf of the landlord, a publicly-traded international holding company. Mohr Partners’ Brandon Glick, Chris Bargowski and Sam Picchiotti represented the tenant.

“203 N. LaSalle St. offers a better location for InnerWorkings’ headquarters, and gives our team members immediate access to all CTA lines and nearby walkable amenities,” said Renae Chorzempa, the firm’s chief HR officer.

The TCS team has secured more than 75,000 square feet of new leases at the 625,000-square-foot property in the past six months. This latest transaction brings the building to 71% leased, up from 59% when TCS was awarded the leasing and property management assignment.
