Innovation Park A JLL Project Profile

The suburban office market is changing in response to two notable trends. While many corporate users have vacated their longtime campuses for the allure of the live/work/play life downtown, others are recommitting to the suburbs and collaborating with creative landlords.

When office park innovator BECO Management acquired the former Motorola Mobility campus in Libertyville in 2014, it fused both trends, creating an urban environment within a suburban landscape. After buying at a low basis and kicking off a large-scale redevelopment, the D.C.-based investor recently chose JLL to market Innovation Park, Lake County.

BECO built it, and we’re making sure they come. As dozens of brokers tour the property each month, the most common reaction is “I had no idea.” With services from meals to daycare and fitness to laundry, employees never have to leave. The productivity implications are profound. Nowhere else can your day include an on-site massage, team bonding in the game room and soaking up sun on the bike path. We’re telling a singular story, and two major tenants have already signed on: Valent Biosciences (98,000 s.f.) and Brightstar (65,000 s.f.).

As an entrepreneurial owner who saw the value of taking an unprecedented 90,000 square feet off market for amenity space, BECO is extremely flexible in its deal structure with tenants. Whether you’re in tech, life sciences or any industry in between, we can help you upgrade and expand into an unheard-of suburban office lifestyle.

“We partnered with the JLL team for their deep expertise in the North Market and familiarity with corporate occupiers. They get people in the door.”
