US Foods, a Fortune 500 company and one of America’s leading food service distributors, has signed a lease renewal of 275,000 square feet with options to expand at Riverway in Rosemont, Illinois. This is the largest office lease signed in the Chicago suburbs since 2017.

Dan Svachula, Michael Simpson and Allyson Birchmeier of Cushman & Wakefield represented the property’s landlord, Adventus Realty, as leasing agents. US Foods was represented by James Otto, Abigail Zaleski and Chris Reynolds of CBRE. “For both suburban and urban based employees, the property provides unparalleled access to multiple transportation options and vast array of onsite and local amenities,” said Svachula, managing director, Cushman & Wakefield.

Adventus Realty—owner of three of the four buildings in the complex—is in the process of implementing significant capital improvements to the buildings located at 9377 W. Higgins, 9399 W. Higgins and 6133 N. River Road. The buildings are undergoing major upgrades to lobby areas, elevators and restrooms, as well as significant enhancements to security, parking and public transportation access. The project is being overseen by SCB Architects.

“We’re excited that US Foods has reaffirmed its commitment to the Chicago suburbs,” said Adventus president and CEO, Rod Johnston. “They have been a cornerstone tenant at Riverway since 2005, and we trust that the recent renovations and on-campus amenities offer their employees, clients and visitors the best office experience in the area.”

Riverway’s 1.1-million-square-foot campus is comprised of four class-A, 11-story office buildings, just minutes from O’Hare International Airport and close to Chicago. The campus offers tenants many amenities, including a Marriott hotel, Fifth-Third Bank branch, food service, fitness center, hair salon, 200-seat auditorium, garage parking and a Carlucci’s restaurant. The property is conveniently situated between two of the region’s most vital arteries—I-90 and I-294—is within walking distance to Chicago Transit Authority’s Blue Line and only a few minutes drive to/from O’Hare.

“We are excited to take this next step in our transformation plans to bring more innovative workplace designs and amenities to our Rosemont headquarters,” said Dawn Mandarino, senior manager for real estate at US Foods. “The convenience of our Rosemont location, combined with our commitment to creating a dynamic and collaborative workplace, provides US Foods with the ideal environment for attracting and retaining top talent across the Chicagoland area.”
