Transwestern Tapped to Broker Chicago Office Deals for Convene

Transwestern Real Estate Services has been selected as the exclusive broker for Convene, a hospitality company that designs and manages premium meeting, event and flexible office spaces, for its two flexible workplace locations in Chicago.  

Executive managing director Larry Serota, EVP Mark Buth and associate Elizabeth Schoenheider negotiated this strategic partnership. Buth and Schoenheider, along with senior associate John Nelson, will help broker office transactions for the flexible office provider. 

Convene’s flexible office spaces in Chicago include: 

  • 311 W. Monroe St. – 118,000 square feet in Central Loop 
  • 333 N. Green St. – 107,000 square feet in Fulton Market 

“We are thrilled to be representing these two unique office experiences,” said Buth. “Both locations differ in terms of the surrounding areas and cater perfectly to different demographics of tenants.”
