MB Shows Off New Office
Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major Chicago players at one of our upcoming events!
|What a difference eight floors makes: MB Real Estate Services recently relocated its Chicago HQ from the 39th to the 47th floor at 181 W. Madison. It added a high-tech, 21st century feel in the process, so we gladly played with all the toys. A staff favorite is the Starbucks area, a casual meeting space with dry-erase cubicle walls that will one day house a flat screen TV (what, you thought that wall bracket was for folders?). Employees are already noticing the open environment allowing more shared energy...and places to throw a football.|
|MBRES' Danny Nikitas showed off his corner office, complete with skateboards and an electric guitar, which he uses to jam with office mates to help get creative flow going. Danny's office is just down the hall from the project services department, which has three empty offices for its rapidly growing staff.|
|MBRES' new breakroom is another highlight of the 17,700 SF space: two microwaves, full-size dishwasher, granite countertops, and a 25-cent soda machine. The firm moved out of its old space when its 20-year lease expired. The new floor is smaller, but more efficient, giving the company room to grow, says MBRES' Dan Peter.|
|We ran into the design and construction team: Bear Construction's Scott Kurinsky, Ted Moudis Associates' Diana Pisone, MBRES'David Graff, along with the camera-shy Dan Aboutar, were happy to hear that after two weeks, MBRES still loves the space (let's hope that love lasts another 20 years). David's team is currently working on about 300M SF of construction around Chicago and New York.|
