Vestian Secures New HQ for Headline Solar in “Metroburb” Bell Works Development

Global commercial real estate concern Vestian, has secured a new 15,000 square foot headquarters space for Headline Solar, the fastest-growing solar company in the Midwest, according to Vestian.

The Vestian team representing Headline includes Gregg Espach, Executive Managing Director; Patrick Kobilca, Director; and Bryant McKenzie, Associate. 

The new HQ space upgrades Headline Solar from a Class-B to Class-A building within the brand-new $200M Bell Works redevelopment project. Bell Works is formerly the 1.65-million-square-foot, 150-acre, campus for AT&T/Ameritech in Hoffman Estates. 

Bell Works is referred to as a “Metroburb,” combining workplaces, dining options, retail experiences and more. The location, and its amenities package, is ideal for Headline’s new HQ space and their growing employee base.

It was critical to Headline Solar that their new HQ allow them to scale up quickly, without compromising cost and limiting capital exposure. With that in mind, Vestian secured a lease for Headline Solar that increases their footprint substantially. It also provided favorable economics compared to market, limits capital exposure, and has several fixed expansion options that provide Headline Solar the flexibility to expand their presence at Bell Works as their workforce grows. 

“Headline’s new US Headquarters takes advantage of an incredible opportunity of being one of the first tenants into a first-class redevelopment like Bell Works,” said Vestian Executive Managing Director, Gregg Espach. “We were able to leverage the market, scale occupancy, and achieve flexibility in a dynamic environment well-suited for a rapidly-growing company.”
