Quarles & Brady LLP - Chicago

Quarles & Brady LLP relocated their Chicago office in April 2009. They leased a total of 75,000 square feet on the 40th, 50th and 51st floors of the Hines building at 300 North LaSalle Street. The space was selected based on location, square feet efficiency, leasehold costs, tenant improvement costs, operating costs, move and related costs, furniture and tenant improvement costs and overall appeal/brand alignment.

The space is certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) CI Gold. The design intent was to create a hospitality-minded client-centric space, adaptive to the continually changing problem-solving nature of a legal work environment, with the ability to reinvent itself continually over the course of the 15-year lease. In addition, Green was considered as a holistic concept in terms of client, legal team, and staff expectations; facility, protocols, operations, administration, brand, and culture.
