EnTrust represented LEAP Innovations Inc. with its new headquarters office lease of 11,675 SF in the tower of Chicago’s iconic Merchandise Mart. LEAP Innovations is a leading not-profit dedicated to inspiring, delivering and advancing the practice of equitable,personalized learning experiences, designed to enable every learner to reach their full potential. LEAP has received grants from some of the most prestigious foundations in the world including the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, and the Pritzker Foundation.

After extensively touring and vetting the Chicago CBD, EnTrust identified a solution that allowed LEAP to continue its presence at the Merchandise Mart’s 1871 incubator facility while expanding its operations to a creative plug & play space on a full-floor sublease including furniture in the Mart’s tower. As part of EnTrust’s holistic real estate approach, we contributed to LEAP’s visioning and space planning process, which ultimately qualified this new location as the perfect spot for its office and programming needs.

This successful lease demonstrates EnTrust’s ability to effectively translate our client’s goals into real estate reality.
