CHICAGO-Architecture firm Gilfillan Callahan Nelson Architects has leased 7,500 square feet at 223 W. Jackson. The space will be used to house the company’s StudioGC division, which specializes in private sector architecture and interiors projects in the downtown Chicago commercial market. The company will relocate this division from its current space in the West Loop in April.

“We are very pleased to be in this historic building and to be able to ‘reuse’ a nearly 100-year-old treasure,” said Mike Gilfillan, principal at the firm. “This is just the first step in our overall sustainability program. We are going to be very careful during renovations to keep as much construction material as possible out of the waste stream, incorporate recycled materials in our interior finishes and install ecofriendly plumbing and electrical fixtures.”

The company says the building selection is hoped to compliment its corporate sustainability goals and commitment to reducing fossil fuels. Mark Kolar, with Jones Lang LaSalle, represented the firm in the lease, while Al Adducci, with Marc Realty, represented building ownership. Kolar said the building’s proximity to public transportation also played a role in the company’s selection.
