Latest office amenity is a doctor’s office downstairs
Eden Health will open clinics at 4 Sterling Bay office developments
In the Covid age, office landlords have offered an array of amenities to lure back tenants, including on-site child care, dry-cleaning pickup, parking discounts, yoga studios and golf simulators.
And in Chicago’s post-Covid office world, add health care to the list.
Employer health care provider Eden Health has inked leases with Sterling Bay to open clinics at two of the developer’s office buildings — and is nearing deals on two more, according to the Chicago Tribune. Eden Health will offer a range of services, including primary and urgent care, and those that address mental health.
The initial sites will occupy ground-floor space at 600 West Chicago Avenue and 111 N. Canal Street, according to the report. And deals are close for space at Prudential Plaza — which Sterling Bay bought for $680 million in 2018 — and 333 N. Green Street in Fulton Market. Sterling Bay developed that building, dubbed Gr33n.
The health care company is also in talks with a different property owner to lease space at three other complexes across the city, the Tribune reported.
Eden Health CEO Matt McCambridge said the company was “seeing landlords shifting the way they’re delivering services, and we see tenants and employers really demanding on-site medical services, especially in this post-pandemic environment.”
