Irvine Co. Office Properties prepares to settle into its new Chicago regional office at 71 South Wacker, encompassing 4,500 square feet, after consolidating its leasing team. The company has recently promoted Beau Rawi to vice president from regional director, a position he has held since 2013, when he joined Irvine. Prior to this, he spent more than eight years as director with LA Realty Partners.

Rawi will be leading the Chicago office leasing crew together with Executive Vice President Pamela Van Nort and Senior Director Gregory Tait. The latter was hired last summer, having previously worked for Tishman Speyer.

Irvine needed a regional office in the Windy City to enhance leasing efforts at the three iconic buildings in its portfolio: 71 South Wacker, 300 North LaSalle and One North Wacker. Together, the trophy high-rises encompass 4.2 million square feet which are occupied by several notable tenants such as Goldman Sachs, IBM, Mayer Brown LLP and Kirkland & Ellis.  

71 S. Walker is this year’s Outstanding Building of the Year Earth Award recipient. The 48-story building is LEED Platinum certified and offers several state-of-the-art amenities including a conference center, fitness facility, tenant-only on-site dining and retail stores.
