Two West Loop Headquarters Buildings Go Up for Sale

A pair of West Loop headquarters properties has gone on the market in a sign that landlords are expecting commercial property sales to pick up soon as the COVID-19 pandemic wanes, Crain’s Chicago Business reported.

Los Angeles-based American Realty Advisors is looking to cash out on its 527,000-square-foot office building at 1000 W. Fulton Market, which houses Google’s Midwest headquarters. The 10-story building is expected to draw bids of up to $360 million, Crain’s reported, citing Real Estate Alert. The Chicago office of Eastdil Secured is marketing the property for sale.

Across town, German investor GLL Real Estate has hired JLL’s Chicago office to sell the 18-story office building at 550 W. Adams St., according to a marketing flyer. The 485,000-square-foot property, which houses USG’s main office, could trade for close to $225 million, a price far exceeding the $185 million GLL paid in 2015.
