HERE Technologies inked a lease spanning eight floors and more than 275,000 square feet inside the freshly-renovated 36-story office tower at 100 North Riverside Plaza, better known as Boeing International Headquarters.

The move will allow the tech company to expand its Chicago staff from 1,200 employees to 1,400 and declare the city as its Americas headquarters, according to a Tuesday afternoon announcement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office.

The $15 million renovation updated the building’s ninth, 14th, 17th and 18th floors, according to the website BLDUP.

Designed by Perkins+Will, the 560-foot tower was built in 1990 on top of Metra and Amtrak tracks as a corporate home for the Morton Salt Company. Boeing moved its international headquarters from Seattle in 2001 before buying the building in 2005, according to Cook County property records.

Property manager CBRE won a TOBY International Building of the year award for the tower this year.

HERE, the Netherlands-based mapping and locations services company, operates in 55 countries employs more than 9,000 people around the world.

The Boeing building is across the street from 150 North Riverside Plaza, where Riverside Investment & Development completed its 54-story office tower last year.

A report released by RentCafe last week identified ZIP code 60606, where the Boeing Headquarters is located, as the most expensive ZIP code in the Midwestern United States by median apartment rent.
