Key Takeaways

  • New leasing activity customers include global law firm White & Case LLP 
  • Irvine Company continues to invest in its workplaces, including a $30 million reinvestment plan at 300 North LaSalle and a $10 million reinvestment plan at One North Wacker
  • Irvine Company closed 2023 and started 2024 with great momentum, leasing more than 600,000 square feet in Chicago since July 2023

Chicago, Ill. (April 8, 2024) — Irvine Company announced today continued leasing momentum at 300 North LaSalle with an additional 113,000 square feet leased. Among customers in the new leasing activity includes leading global law firm White & Case LLP, which leased 64,000 square feet and will occupy two and a half floors in the 60-story riverfront building.

“When leasing with Irvine Company, customers benefit from our industry-leading financial stability which allows them to lease with confidence. Our strong leasing activity highlights the continued flight to quality and the ever-growing importance of choosing not only where your company works, but who your landlord is,” said Roger DeWames, President of Irvine Company Office. “With its prestigious riverfront location and planned experience-driven amenities, 300 North LaSalle is the ideal home for companies looking to recruit and retain top talent and provide an engaging workday experience.”

White & Case has lawyers in 44 offices across 30 countries and is among the first US-based law firms to have a truly global presence. The Firm opened its Chicago office in 2018, which has since worked on many of the most high-profile, complex legal matters in the Midwest market, and globally.

“This new space reflects White & Case’s continued upward momentum in the Chicago legal market, and our commitment to offering a world-class working environment to our people and leading legal services to our clients,” said the Firm’s Chicago Office Executive Partner, Matthew Devine. “Our Chicago office continues to go from strength-to-strength, and working closely with Irvine Company, our new space reflects this growth. It will serve as a point-of-entry in the Midwest market to the full array of preeminent legal services that we provide to clients around the world.”

White & Case joins other high-profile, forward-looking companies seeking a modern workplace destination with hospitality-inspired service. International law firm Crowell & Moring signed a 50,000-square-foot lease at 300 North LaSalle earlier this month.

With an existing lease in California, Crowell & Moring also joins a growing number of companies that are expanding their partnership with Irvine Company across markets. Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance and Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani recently signed leases at Irvine Company’s other Chicago trophy tower, One North Wacker, at 26,000 square feet and 30,000 square feet, respectively — and both companies also lease space in Irvine Company’s California office locations.

With its financial stability and long-term ownership, Irvine Company continues to invest in its workplaces, including a $30 million reinvestment plan at 300 North LaSalle and a $10 million reinvestment plan at One North Wacker. This reinvestment helped Irvine Company close 2023 and start this year with great momentum — Irvine Company has leased more than 600,000 square feet in Chicago since July 2023.

Notable 2023 Chicago leases include:  

  • BakerHostetler, One North Wacker
  • Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani, LLP, One North Wacker
  • Winston & Strawn LLP, 300 North LaSalle
