Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces $181.57 million in construction financing for the development of 333 North Green Street, a to-be-built, 548,932-square-foot, Class A office tower in the Fulton Market District of Chicago’s central business district.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the developer, Sterling Bay and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, to secure the floating-rate construction loan through Wells Fargo.

333 North Green Street will be a 19-story, Class A office tower with floor plates ranging from 13,634 square feet to 40,589 square feet, situated above 31,521 square feet of street level retail. Additionally, the best-in-class project will feature a 326-stall, four-floor parking garage on floors two through five of the property and market-leading amenities, including a 2,700-square-foot fitness center, 2,000-square-foot conference area and a 5,590-square-foot tenant lounge along with a private rooftop deck for tenant use. The LEED Silver certified building is 47.2 percent leased to GroupM and will serve as their North American headquarters as well as the regional headquarters for WPP, their parent company. 333 North Green Street is located in the Fulton Market District, which has become the city’s premier office submarket and a true live/work/play environment with numerous multifamily units and hotel keys under construction and access to many of Chicago’s popular and award-winning restaurants along Restaurant Row. The property benefits from a Walk Score® of 97 and a Transit Score® of 89 being situated just five blocks from both the Morgan Street and Grand Avenue “L” stations and a short distance from Ogilvie Station that provides commuter rail access.

HFF’s debt placement team included managing directors Timothy Joyce and Danny Kaufman and director Christopher Knight.
