Since its inception in 2016, Talman Consultants has tripled in size, outgrowing the coworking space where it was located. The firm required a larger, more productive, on-brand space for its team but wasn’t able to precisely calculate how much more growth it would achieve in the future. Needing to finalize a deal within 60 days, Talman urgently needed to identify cutting edge spaces that would enable it to meet its requirements without having to commit to a long-term deal.
We quickly found a property in Chicago’s iconic Board of Trade Building (141 W. Jackson) that met Talman’s needs. We brokered the lease for a 16,917 square foot space in the building. The location, just a few blocks from City Hall, was a big selling point as Talman’s team regularly meets with city officials. The property features attractive amenities for employees, including a gym, a rooftop, food options, and more.
The new space was move-in ready and ideally suited to Talman’s needs and culture. It also offered the option of adding up to 12,000 square feet of expansion space. A strategic partner of ours, Box Studios, assisted with space programming and to optimize the office for greater productivity. “The move provides Talman an important opportunity to customize our space and technology to support our multi-disciplinary teams, proprietary design, and project management tools,” said Talman’s Managing Partner James Norton.
