In the story, JLL Midwest Retail Director Mark Hunter details the group’s plans to double the size of its Chicago retail team and leasing/management portfolio over the next five years.
(The firm got a head start on that effort earlier this month with the hiring of veteran retail leasing agents Claire Bitautas and Anne Imming.)
JLL currently leases more than 3.5 million square feet of retail space here locally, yet is not well-known for its retail prowess. As Hunter told Crain’s in the interview:
“JLL is probably more known for office than we are for retail. Once we have the opportunity to show the amount of retail space that we currently are responsible for, whether it be in Chicago, the Midwest or throughout the country, our results for the most part speak for themselves.”
