Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics signs long-term lease extension for HQ space at CDW Plaza

Representing more than 100,000 food and nutrition practitioners across the United States and throughout the world, the Academy will begin the new lease in December—shortly before the organization’s centennial in 2017.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics finalized a long-term lease extension for its headquarters at the CDW Plaza, 120 South Riverside Plaza.

Representing more than 100,000 food and nutrition practitioners across the United States and throughout the world, the Academy will begin the new lease in December—shortly before the organization’s centennial in 2017. The Academy has been based at the building owned by Ivanhoe Cambridge and Callaghan Capital Properties since 2003.

In order to create the future of the organization, the Academy desired to change its physical layout to become more efficient and reflect the way it will operate in the years to come. A client since 2002, the organization engaged Richard Plonsker of Savills Studley as its real estate advisor.

120 South Riverside Plaza immediately borders the Chicago River to its east; with West Monroe, West Adams and South Canal streets surrounding the plaza. Chicago’s Union Station is across the street from the office building, and a wide variety of hotels, restaurants and additional transportation outlets are within blocks. Sara Spicklemire of CBRE represented the landlord in this transaction.
