In the western suburbs of Chicago, office tenants still call the shots.  However, there are signs that these good times are coming to an end.

Copied below are the rent changes I’ve seen in Q1 2015 in the western suburban office market.

It’s still a tenant’s market, but office rents are increasing in some key properties.

Please let me know if I can answer any questions about the local office market.  I help businesses find commercial office space and negotiate commercial lease and purchase agreements.  You can reach me at or (630) 805-2463.
