John Hancock Building Repositioning Improvements
The HEARN Company is the new owner of the iconic Hancock Center and wanted to reposition the building to provide the environment and amenities to attract today’s tenants.
Creating a new tenant experience started with common elevator lobbies, corridors and restrooms. Amenities were added to build a social community, including an enhanced fitness center and conference center as well as a new relaxed social environment in the game/WIFI lounge. These amenities allow tenants to enjoy the benefits without the associated construction and lease costs of having their own spaces.
To help potential tenants and real estate professionals visualize both traditional and open, collaborative planning and design options, two specs suites were developed. Both suites, which are ready for move in, demonstrate planning and finish options at various price points. The suites show how the building spaces can be adapted to fit the needs of diverse tenants.
The repositioning strategy for this iconic structure will maintain the Hancock Center as the premier address in the City of Chicago.
