CHICAGO—An affiliate of Beacon Capital Partners has bought 303 East Wacker, a 944,000-square-foot riverfront office tower in the East Loop submarket, from Franklin Street Partners for $182 million. It’s another sign that investors now see the East Loop, once an afterthought in Chicago’s office market, as a vibrant and attractive neighborhood sought out by creative tenants. And that gives Beacon an excellent opportunity.
