Transwestern Expands Commerz Relationship with Second Leasing Assignment

Commerz Real, the asset and investment manager of German Commerzbank, selected Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) to provide leasing services for Fulton West, a nine-story, 290,000-square-foot, Class A office building at 1330 W. Fulton St. in Chicago’s West Loop submarket. EVP Eric Myers and SVPs Jeff Dowdell and Kathleen Bertrand will provide leasing services . 
Earlier this year, Commerz Real selected Transwestern to lease up The National at 125 S. Clark, a 582,400-square-foot office building in the Central Loop. 
“We are excited by the opportunity to broaden our relationship with Commerz Real in Chicago,” said Myers. “Fulton West is a modern development that offers tenants extensive amenities in an exceedingly desirable location, allowing employers to provide an ideal setting as they bring their teams back to the workplace.” 
Fulton West was developed by Sterling Bay and opened in 2017. Commerzbank acquired it for $167.5 million in 2019.
