Block 37

Chicago, Illinois

OKW was initially retained by the receiver and property manager after the property began foreclosure proceedings. With only 40% of the retail space leased, OKW worked to develop leasing and marketing exhibits in an effort to push leasing, develop alternative retail planning strategies for vacant space and design a new graphics and signage program to improve way finding and to better identify the building as a retail mall.

OKW continues to work with new owners, CIM Group, to continue the work. Recent work includes; enhanced exterior signage program, better defined tenant criteria and mall standards, leasing and marketing exhibits, development of tenant tracking tools to assist the leasing effort, public space design and technical assistance coordination.
