Nate Gautsche with Chicago Real Estate Resources’ downtown office recently finalized restaurant leases in Lakeview and West Loop/Fulton Market. Nate represented the tenants in both transactions.
Formerly Polenta Bar, Nate Gautsche had the exclusive listing for this second generation restaurant space in what is often considered the hottest neighborhood in Chicago if not the US. Nate was able to quickly negotiate a lease assignment and asset sale to Hakka Bakka which will be opening their 2nd location – Eater Chicago . The West Loop and Fulton Market continues to see continued development to cater to young professionals as the neighborhood has the highest concentration of millennials in the US according to a recent study. One block from both Google’s Chicago HQ as well as McDonald’s new Global HQ and adjacent to the Morgan CTA station, the location features some of the highest foot traffic in the market. Nate was the sole broker in this transaction.
Nate Gautsche represented Taco Bell in the lease of 920 W. Belmont Ave, Chicago – Eater Chicago . Belmont Ave is a late night hub in the Lakeview neighborhood near Wrigley Field on Chicago’s North Side. The area benefits from one of the busiest CTA stations in the city with 24 hour service. Nate was able to secure a 2nd generation restaurant space between the high traffic CTA station and the new Target on the corner of Belmont and Clark. Nate continues to work with Taco Bell as they continue their rapid expansion in the Chicago market.
