LifeStart, a national corporate fitness and wellness company, expands its partnership with MB Real Estate (MBRE) in the development and ongoing management of the new 4,500 square foot state-of-the-art fitness center at One North LaSalle (1NL), in Chicago, IL. One North LaSalle, which is managed and leased by MBRE, is a 47-story art deco office tower that was designated a Chicago landmark in 1996 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.
A joint venture between Hilco Real Estate and Kevin Purcell and Peter Westmeyer, senior executives of MBRE, acquired the building in 2016. The property is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation of the lobby as well as the addition of an amenity floor, The Landmark, which includes a tenant lounge, a conference center, the fitness center, and a rooftop terrace.
“We’re very excited to provide to our tenants at 1NL the highest quality amenities and services. LifeStart is the ideal choice to ensure that our vision is implemented,” said Kevin Purcell, President, Leasing & Management Services for MBRE.
LifeStart will oversee the management of the new center, which includes cutting-edge Life Fitness Discover cardio equipment (with integrated networked monitors capable of providing hundreds of HD channels), strength equipment, a functional area, and executive level locker rooms and amenities. LifeStart plans to provide innovative programs and services to the tenants of 1NL, which are designed to support a healthy, active lifestyle for employees while they are at work.
