CHICAGO-Not all corporate decision-makers have been standing pat in the face of an economy that many see as coming to a sudden stop. Arlington Heights, IL-based O’Malley Construction Co. found three firms willing to commit to Central Business District build-outs, including one involving 90,000 sf at Vornado Realty Trust’s Merchandise Mart.

Navtech, a provider of digital mapping data for vehicle navigation, internet and wireless applications such as Mapquest.com, had its space at 470 W. Merchandise Mart renovated. Brian Courtney was O’Malley’s project manager while John Bajek was project superintendent.

Shorenstein Realty hired O’Malley Construction to complete an 8,000-sf tenant build-out for investment banking and asset management company National Securities at its John Hancock Building at 875 N. Michigan Ave. Principal Patrick O’Malley and superintendent Jim McKenna oversaw the project, which doubled National Securities’ space.

Courtney also oversaw a 2,000-sf retrofit for Odell Hicks & Associates at Shorenstein’s Prudential Plaza, 180 N. Stetson Ave.
