DEERFIELD, IL-Business consulting organization William M. Mercer, Inc. has leased 65,543 sf in Equity Office Properties Trust’s Corporate 500. Specifically, William M. Mercer is taking two floors at 540 Lake-Cook Road in the four-building complex on the southern fringe of Lake County.

While terms of the deal were not released, Equity Office’s asking rate at Corporate 500 is $19.50 per sf, which would make lease worth as much as $1.28 million per year.

Grubb & Ellis senior vice presidents Ned Franke and Jim Ward represented William M. Mercer, which Franke says was attracted to the complex’s location as well as window-lined offices, tenant finishes and efficient floor plans.

William M. Mercer will relocate from 1417 Lake-Cook Road into space that was vacated by a company that was involved in a merger, Grubb & Ellis notes.

Vacancy in class A space in the north suburban market was running 8.3% for the third quarter, according to U.S. Equities Realty research.
