CHICAGO-Faced with 377,397 sf of vacant or soon to be available space, CBT Corp. has hired Timothy J. Curto, William G. Lawrence and Arthur C. West to lead the leasing effort at the 1.3-million-sf Chicago Board of Trade Building. West is general manager of the building at LaSalle Street and Jackson Boulevard, which will also be undergoing renovations.

Previously, CBT Corp. managed its building, which saw a large chunk of space become available with the exodus of UBS Warburg to its namesake tower at 1 N. Wacker Dr., the joint venture developed by The John Buck Co. and Lend Lease Real Estate.

Space at the Chicago Board of Trade Building is on the market at $27 per sf to $29 per sf on a gross basis, according to a spokesperson. Space has been renovated, but build-outs are possible.

Curto has leased 6.2 million sf, including filling up IBM Plaza, 33 W. Monroe St., 122 S. Michigan Ave. and 3 N. Dearborn St. He also was involved in the $480-million sale of 10 and 30 S. Wacker Dr. to Equity Office Properties Trust. Lawrence has been involved in leasing Three First National Plaza, NBC Tower, 222 N. LaSalle St., 55 E Monroe St., 525 W. Monroe St. and the Riverside Plaza Complex.

The 44-story building was the tallest in the city until 1965, when the Daley Center surpassed it.
