What will Chicago look like in 2025?

Chicago’s commercial real estate markets are thriving as educated millennials continue to drive business toward the city’s expanding core, seeking the uniquely urban life of the Windy City. The authentic personality and innovative spirit found across the downtown market continues to showcase new possibilities and exciting investment opportunities in the face of idle tradition and tired routine.

As we look to the future of the city, the buzz is infectious. Chicago has remained strong through the challenges of turbulent times, standing firm as a global business leader and dominant force across all markets. When we look to the decade ahead, we see a city drawing from its historic past to redefine the landscape of the future. We see dynamic expansion.
