The law firm will move into 11,000 square feet of custom, high-tech office space at the John Buck Co.’s CNA Center in the Loop.
151 N. Franklin St.

Manatt, Phelps & Phillips has expanded its Chicago office at 151 N. Franklin St. in the Loop. The law firm, which has started to grow its professional service offering to include tech and digital, leased 11,000 square feet at the John Buck Co.’s high-rise. Manatt will join other high-profile tenants, including CNA Financial Corp., Facebook and Hinshaw & Culbertson. Less than 80,000 square feet remained available following the deal.

The 35-story, 807,000-square-foot building is proposed for LEED Gold certification and encompasses 10,000 square feet of first-floor retail space, according to Yardi Matrix. The second floor provides a variety of amenities, which include a large fitness center, terrace, conference center and a common collaboration and pre-function area. Tenants also have access to a rooftop garden lounge.     

Richard Gottlieb opened Manatt’s Chicago office in 2016 and, since then, the tenant has grown exponentially.
