CHICAGO-Town & Country Pediatrics has signed a lease for 13,500 square feet in the $77 million new Blackhawk/Halsted development, which includes 80,000 square feet for medical office, 75,000 square feet of retail and 70,000 square feet occupied by the British School, all along the Clybourn Corridor at 1460 N. Halsted St. About 80% of the $77 million project is leased, though Michael Drew, cofounder of developer Structured Development, admits he’s having trouble leasing the retail. Only one tenant, a 28,000-square-foot REI, occupies the space since signing the lease last year.

“REI opened just a little more than a month ago, and they’ve been pleased with first month sales. This is their first location in the Chicago area,” Drew tells “The retail has been about what we’ve expected in this market. We’ve had some inquiries from furniture, home goods and medical imaging companies. The number of users for 30,000 square feet are few, and we’ve talked to a few of them over the past year. Given the uncertainty now, we probably won’t hear anything until after the first of the year.”
