Event Details

Join SPIRE on March 19th for a walking tour of the newest developments in Fulton Market with local developer, Jeff Shapack, Founder and CEO of Shapack Partners, a Chicago-based real estate development company. Founded in 2009, Shapack Partners has asserted itself as a leader in the creation and changing landscape of the Fulton Market District. 

Shapack Partners acquires, repositions, develops and invests in properties throughout downtown Chicago. With an expertise in acquisition, design, leasing and development, they focus on multiple asset classes including office, residential, hospitality, retail and restaurants. 

Over the past few years, Shapack Partners has amassed a diverse and impressive portfolio of properties in the West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Their rather holistic approach to development has not only resulted in new neighborhood hot spots like WeWork and Soho House, but also public artwork befitting of the neighborhood's emerging position as Chicago's creative hub.

Chicago's Fulton Market District is already a hot spot for new office development, so much so, that it on the top ten list of metropolitan area sites that comprise Chicago’s formal bid for Amazon’s ‘HQ2’ second North American headquarters deal - a deal is said to be worth up to $5 billion in investment and 50,000 jobs. 

Dinner and cocktails to follow at the Ace Hotel's rooftop bar and lounge, the Waydown. Waydown draws inspiration from the long and storied tradition of Midwestern watering holes, offering ample views of the downtown skyline, nightly music and strong, no-nonsense drinks. You won't want to miss it!

This event is open to all SPIRE members.
