Home Chef and data analytics firm 84.51 are set to join the growing roster of tenants at 601W Companies’ redeveloped Old Main Post Office.
The two companies owned by the Kroger grocery store chain are taking a total of 132,000 square feet in the 2.8 million-square-foot office building at 433 West Van Buren Street, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Home Chef, which makes meal kits, is moving its headquarters into 75,000 square feet in the sprawling complex, while 84.51, which provides data analytics for Kroger, is taking 57,000 square feet.
601W is in the midst of an $800 million overhaul of the building, and is expected to welcome its first tenants in the fall.
Walgreens last year was the first company to announce a lease in the building, taking 200,000 square feet. Other confirmed tenants are ad agency AbelsonTaylor, Ferrara Candy and the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, which agreed to lease 49,000 square feet. [Chicago Tribune] — John O’Brien
