Hines Global Income Trust Acquires Goose Island Creative Office Building

February 22, 2022

(CHICA­GO) – Hines, the glob­al real estate firm, announced today that Hines Glob­al Income Trust, Inc. has acquired 1315 N. North Branch, a ful­ly-leased, 157,450-square-foot, recent­ly ren­o­vat­ed cre­ative office build­ing in the emerg­ing Goose Island sub­mar­ket of Chicago.

1315 N. North Branch is an urban infill build­ing locat­ed on three acres and leased to six ten­ants. The building’s indus­tri­al design with loft­ed ceil­ings, over­sized sky­lights and divid­ed-light win­dows com­bined with a spa­cious fit­ness cen­ter and lock­ers, a golf sim­u­la­tor, pri­vate out­door patios and decks and heat­ed indoor park­ing has attract­ed ten­ants from a diverse set of indus­tries includ­ing finan­cial ser­vices, design and logis­tics. Each of the suites has its own entrance and iden­ti­ty, pro­vid­ing con­ve­nience and the abil­i­ty for ten­ants to indi­vid­u­al­ize their spaces.

Locat­ed in the mid­dle of Chicago’s most afflu­ent neigh­bor­hoods, Goose Island ben­e­fits from robust ten­ant demand and neigh­bor­hood tail­winds dri­ven by an increas­ing set of live, work, and play offerings.

Across our mar­kets we’ve noticed that urban neigh­bor­hood offices offer­ing a unique aes­thet­ic, con­ve­nient access and curat­ed ten­ant envi­ron­ments con­tin­ue to per­form with pos­i­tive ten­ant feed­back. We look for­ward to fur­ther­ing Goose Island’s excit­ing evo­lu­tion through active own­er­ship and engage­ment at 1315 N. North Branch,” said Will Ren­ner, man­ag­ing direc­tor at Hines.

Jan­ice Walk­er, chief oper­at­ing offi­cer of Hines Glob­al Income Trust added, We are see­ing com­pelling invest­ments in the dif­fer­en­ti­at­ed office space. 1315 N. North Branch affords the fund an oppor­tu­ni­ty to acquire a cre­ative office prod­uct with excep­tion­al build­ing attrib­ut­es in a dynam­ic loca­tion. The mat­u­ra­tion of the sub­mar­ket offers expo­sure to a micro-loca­tion posi­tioned for con­tin­ued growth and demand.”

Hines Glob­al Income Trust is diver­si­fied by geog­ra­phy and real estate sec­tors, with a focus on sta­ble assets with strong long-term income poten­tial. This office acqui­si­tion com­ple­ments a port­fo­lio that is near­ly two thirds weight­ed toward the indus­tri­al and liv­ing sec­tors and is val­ued at $2.9 billion.

Cush­man & Wake­field, led by Cody Hun­dert­mark, David Knapp and Tom Sitz, served as bro­ker for the transaction.
