Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) January 12, 2007
Tandem Development Group, a newly formed commercial real estate development company, closed on the purchase of 300 N. Martingale Road in Schaumburg, Ill. The purchase price was $16.1 million or $103.61 per square foot.
In addition to the acquisition, PromoWorks, a marketing services company headquartered in Schaumburg, finalized a 10-year lease at 300 N. Martingale Road totaling 60,000 square feet. The deal brings the total occupancy of the building to 97 percent.
"PromoWorks has experienced year over year exponential growth, and with one year remaining on our lease we found ourselves bursting at the seams in our old building. Working with Tandem, they found the perfect location for our expanding marketing services company - a premium space with plenty of room for our employees and our dynamic culture to thrive," said Mike Kent, CEO of PromoWorks. "Thanks to Tandem, PromoWorks will also have exceptional brand visibility with exterior building signage along one of the northwest suburbs' busiest arteries."
Tandem Development Group is a collaboration of former CenterPoint Properties Chief Investment Officer and Chief Operating Officer Paul Ahern and construction industry leader Leopardo Companies, Inc.
The buyer, Tandem Development Group, was represented by the CB Richard Ellis team of Jack Reardon and Mark Smith. The seller, JP Morgan Investment Management Inc., was presented by Paul Lundstedt, executive director at Cushman & Wakefield. Permanent financing was arranged by John Clifford and Tim Noonan of LJ Melody. The permanent loan was provided by Goldman Sachs.
300 N. Martingale is a 156,000-square-foot "Class A" office building in Schaumburg, Ill. The eight-story building is located in the heart of Woodfield Corporate Center at the intersection of Route 72 (Higgins Road) and I-290. Campus amenities include covered parking for all employees, 24-hour on-site security, fitness center, deli, dry cleaner, flower shop, hair salon, full-service restaurant and bank.
