Mesirow, an independent, employee-owned financial services firm, has signed a 10-year extension on its current lease at 353 N. Clark, a LEED Platinum-certified building in the city’s River North area.

“We are pleased to be staying in our longtime headquarters,” said Natalie Brown, Mesirow CEO, “and are excited about how our renovated spaces will enhance our time in the office and deepen our reputation as an employer of choice in Chicago.”

Mesirow will continue to occupy more than 100,000 square feet, a reduction from the roughly 165,000 square feet the firm currently has, with additional options to expand. Ari Klein and Scott Shelbourne of Cushman & Wakefield represented Mesirow in the lease extension. CBRE’s Mike Kazmierczak and Seth Tuscher handle leasing for 353 N. Clark Street.

Over the past five years, Mesirow’s employee headcount has increased, with key strategic acquisitions and hires across the firm. Headquartered in Chicago, Mesirow is an independent, employee-owned financial services firm. Heitman paid Tishman Speyer $715 million for the nearly 1.2 million square foot office tower in 2014.
