In 2010, Chicago hosted over 38 million visitors and generated over $2
billion in retail sales. 58-68 East Oak Street is located in the Gold Coast in
the heart of Chicago’s premier retail shopping district. Situated mid-block
between North Michigan Avenue and North Rush Street, the long anticipated
Esquire Redevelopment consists of 120 feet of prime frontage on Oak Street.
With the availability of up to 30,000 square feet on three floors, this is a rare
opportunity for a retailer to design unique branded facades featuring ceiling
heights in excess of 20 feet within a clean shell space. The building offers a
tenant to have full building identity as well as the flexibility to showcase up to
five dramatic boutiques.

Oak Street tenants include Barneys New York, Hermes, Prada, Harry Winston,
Jil Sander, Pomellato, Moncler, Loro Piana, Graff, Jimmy Choo, Vince,
Furla, Kate Spade and Tod’s.

Currently the property is vacant and renovation is underway. Delivery is
scheduled for Spring 2012.
