Seneca Arranges Lease of 17,000 SF Banquet Facility In Glenview, Illinois

Retail lease suburbs Glenview


GLENVIEW, ILL.  — Seneca Real Estate Group has arranged the lease of a two-story banquet facility in Glenview, a northwestern Chicago suburb. United Investors Inc. leased the 17,000-square-foot facility for five years to In Paris Inc. The property is located at 3315 N. Milwaukee Ave. The building was originally designed to resemble a scaled-down version of the old Chicago Stadium (an indoor arena that at one time was the home of the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Bulls before closing in 1994). The property consists of a multi-level ballroom with majestic ceilings, lighting and a 4,000-square-foot commercial kitchen. The banquet hall accommodates 700 guests and includes a 160-car parking lot.  After some internal design work, In Paris will continue to operate the property as a banquet facility hosting weddings, parties and corporate events.  Joe Padorr of Seneca represented the landlord in the transaction.

Chicago (August 18, 2015)Seneca Real Estate Group’s principal and director of marketing and leasing, Joe Padorr, represented a Taco Bell franchisee tenant in the 10-year lease of a 1,413-square-foot space at The Morgan at Loyola Station, 6460 N. Sheridan, at Sheridan Road and Arthur Avenue, in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood. Allan Perales, McCaffery Interests, represented the property.
