MB Real Estate Represents Transportation One in HQ Relocation

Chicago, IL | November 15, 2019

MB Real Estate (MBRE) is pleased to announce that Craig McCaw, assistant vice president of Corporate Services, has completed a 22,160 square foot lease on behalf of Transportation One, LLC allowing them to more than double their current footprint. Transportation One will be relocating several blocks north of its current office to 1315 N. North Branch on Chicago’s historic Goose Island neighborhood. This deal represents Transportation One’s fourth and most significant relocation to date in a move that will accommodate the firm’s rapid growth.

Led by Jamie Teets, CEO and founder, Transportation One is a Chicago-based, full-service logistics provider that has experienced tremendous growth since opening its doors in 2010. “We continue to invest in many facets of the business, building on a strong foundation, and the office expansion is a testament to that,” said Teets. “The new office is instrumental for our goals to continue to grow and attract the best talent." Due to Transportation One's blue-chip performance, the firm has been consistently selected as a perennial award winner for Food Logistics Top 100, Crain’s Fast 50, Inner City 100, and Inc. 5000.

“Transportation One’s success is based on their commitment to an energetic, hardworking atmosphere in the office,” said McCaw. “The new office will enable employees to work in multiple collaboration zones or peel away into single-session office spaces.”

Goose Island was immediately appealing due to the residual character left behind by the original building occupants. While adding design features like the existing 35-foot crane bays at 1315 N. North Branch would prove prohibitively expensive, renovating existing conditions for office users is more easily achieved and maintains the character and aesthetic attractive to a company like Transportation One.

MBRE’s Craig McCaw represented Transportation One in the transaction, and the building owner, R^2 Companies, was self-represented by Matt Pistorio and Matt Duhig. Transportation One moves into their new headquarters early next year.
