Chicago, March 2021 – Global real estate leaders and joint venture partners Thor Equities Group and QuadReal, are pleased to announce an additional 10,900 square feet at 800 W. Fulton Market has been leased to Aspen Dental Management.
Providing top business support and administrative services, Aspen Dental has expanded their presence at 800 W. Fulton, adding a supplementary 10,900 square feet to their current space to total 197,000. Aspen Dental signed a long-term deal to occupy eight floors at 800 W. Fulton Market in January 2020. At the eastern entrance to the historic Fulton Market District, the project is a 19-story mixed-use building with over 400,000 square feet of office and retail space, as well as a range of public amenities. With a total of over 207,900 square feet, Aspen Dental will occupy majority of the office space and 8,000 square feet of retail space on West Fulton Market. Selected by the company for the building’s smart building technologies including a tenant facing mobile application, fitness center, social sky lounge, and conference center that can accommodate up to 100 people, 800 W. Fulton Market is the ideal location for Aspen Dental’s new national headquarters.
“Office space is incredibly important to the success of businesses across all sectors. While organizations were able to adapt to remote work during the pandemic, it has become apparent that employees need space to interact and engage safely. 800 W. Fulton was designed with employee wellbeing at the forefront, and we are pleased with Aspen Dental’s decision to expand their space. Quadreal has been an excellent partner and together we are dedicated to building a project that meets and exceeds the demands of today’s workforce,” said Chairman of Thor Equities Group, Joe Sitt.
Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merril, 800 W. Fulton Market features a striking façade with outdoor, stair-step terraces and an iconic x-brace design and panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. Planned to meet the highest sustainability standards credentials, the project is targeting both LEED Platinum and the WELL Building Standard certification. Having broken ground in October 2019, the development is slated to open in Spring of 2021.
Thor’s portfolio also includes nearby 942 W. Fulton Market, 1003 W. Fulton Market and 1229 W. Randolph Street. The latter property recently received approval for an 8.5 story boutique office building. Thor closed on the sale of 905 W. Fulton Market in May 2020, after leasing the development to Mondelez International and Dineamic Hospitality.
