MB Real Estate was chosen by First Midwest Bancorp to relocate their headquarters from Itasca, Illinois to the North-West side of Chicago. As part of First Midwest’s regional expansion plan, the firm needed an office space that was centrally located and able to accommodate their future growth strategy. Our Corporate Services team helped First Midwest consolidate a number of their satellite offices and conducted demographic and time travel studies to find an optimal site location for the firm’s suburban and downtown employees. After consideration of several alternatives, FMB leased 87,000-square feet at Triangle Plaza in O’Hare. The new HQ will be home to over 300 employees. MB Real Estate’s Project Services oversaw project and construction management for the new headquarters which was completed mid-2018.
