The Chicago-based consulting firm is working to finalize a deal for about 110,000 square feet in the 1.2-million-square-foot tower Chicago developer John O'Donnell is building at 150 N. Riverside Plaza in the West Loop, according to people familiar with the deal.
Chicago-based John Buck lost potential anchor Freeborn & Peters for its planned tower at 151 N. Franklin St. in the Loop when the law firm opted instead to renew its lease in the West Loop, but the developer has a commitment from another law firm, Hinshaw & Culbertson.
Navigant would move from the CME Center, at 30 S. Wacker Drive, where it leases about 120,000 square feet. That lease expires in May 2017, according to sources.
