Built in 1974 and renovated in 2006, the property offers proximity to Interstate 90/94 and public transit, views of Wacker and Chicago’s south side, and 24-hour security.

Tony Karmin and Corby Marx with Transwestern represented WH Trading in the deal, while Samuel Schaefer represented building owner Tishman Speyer.

The firm was attracted to 23the building for its efficient layout and ability to accommodate power requirements, Transwestern says.
