Franklin Partners has unveiled redevelopment plans for the former OfficeMax headquarters in Naperville, IL. The 350,000-square-foot property at 263 Shuman Blvd., vacant since 2014, will be revamped as The Shuman, featuring a 30,000-square-foot amenity space designed to build community among building employees.
“We have identified this unmet demand for highly social, tech-equipped workplaces in Chicago’s suburbs,” said Franklin Partners principal Ray Warner. “As professionals settle in the suburbs after living in the city, they’re still looking for an urban workplace—and The Shuman will deliver that amenity-rich, human-centric experience they’re craving.”
Franklin Partners acquired the building in a joint venture with Bixby Bridge Capital in April 2018. Wright Heerema Architects is handling the property’s redesign.
A Colliers International team of Francis Prock and David Florent, will serve as exclusive leasing agents for the renovated offices. The property will offer a variety of workspace options.
