CHICAGO — Baker Development Corp. has completed the exterior construction of 2017 N. Mendell, a 62,000-square-foot office redevelopment in Chicago. The property was formerly an industrial building and will be the first Class A office project completed in the North Branch Industrial Corridor since the adoption of zoning changes last year. Customizable spaces at 2017 N. Mendell, a speculative office development, range from 3,800 to 17,000 square feet. The property will feature a 3,000-square-foot rooftop deck and a dedicated food truck court. Windows will automatically adjust to sunlight to reduce glare and improve temperature control. Baker expects to deliver the first spaces during this quarter. A streamlined interior build-out process, featuring pre-selected options for paint, lighting, flooring and wall partitions, will enable businesses to quickly occupy their space.
