“QRM has been a valued tenant at 181 West Madison for more than 15 years,” said Mark Buth, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of MBRE’s Leasing Services. “In today’s competitive real estate market, it is especially rewarding to expand the relationship with an internationally headquartered tenant.”

Mr. Buth represented building ownership in the transaction along with Kelsey Scheive, Vice President of MBRE’s Leasing Services.

Leased and managed by MBRE since it was developed by Miglin-Beitler in 1990, 181 West Madison’s sense of community and premium amenities have successfully attracted high-profile tenants such as FactSet, Cornerstone Research, Duracell, and Revlon.

The 50-story, 952,559 square foot building was designed by internationally renowned architect Cesar Pelli and includes amenities such as a 14,000-square-foot wellness center, a conference center, a planned expanded tenant lounge, on-site executive parking, and a bike share program.
