The FAA Great Lakes regional HQ occupies most of the building. 2300 East Devon is one of five buildings within the 50-acre O’Hare Lake Office Park. Transwestern’s Gary Nussbaum and Thomas Gorman repped the seller.

In the first major industrial lease of 2013 in the I-55 corridor, Minneapolis-based Dedicated Logistics leased 125k SF, or more than half of the space at the 200k SF 505 Crossroads Blvd in Bolingbrook, which is owned by industrial giant ProLogis. The landlord was repped by ProLogis’ Jim Neswold and Champion Realty Advisors’ J D Salazar, while the tenant was repped by CBRE’s David Prell.

3030 Salt Creek Atrium LLC, which recently closed on acquiring the property of that name in Arlington Heights, tapped NAI Hiffman’s Jack Reardon and Transition Brokers RE’s Brandon Berger to lease the 100k property, which has about 59k SF available. The building was purchased for under $30/SF by a “a seasoned owner,” Jack says.

The 28-unit 8321 South King Dr in Chicago traded hands for $700k. Marcus & Millichap’s Ryan Engle and Anthony Hardy, in the firm’s Oak Brook office, repped both sides. The buyer was an LLC, while the seller was an individual. The property sold after 19 days on the market.
Marquette Real Estate Investments obtained first mortgage for the Ponds of Naperville in Naperville, a fractured condo property. Marquette originally bought the property in 2000, and began selling it as condos in 2007. In recent years, the company has been renting the unsold units, 111 out of 216. Aries Capital’s Jeff Bucaro secured a lender who extended $8.8M at 75% LTV as the first mortgage on the non-contiguous units, and also allowed a recorded second mortgage at 80% LTV, along with additional mezz debt beyond the 80%. The first mortgage loan features a 4.25% rate, a four-year term with extension options, and a 30-year amortization.

He’s also been snapped at Bisnow events, such as at one last year (center), flanked by Rich Gatto and Thomas Saletta.
