An energy, engineering, and resource consulting firm that has called a five-story Evanston office building home for the last 20 years has just signed a new long-term lease.

Grumman/Butkus Associates occupies 26,000 square feet as the anchor tenant at the renovated 820 Davis Street. Free Market Ventures, the owner of the 85,985-square-foot building, recently completed a re-imagination of the exterior façade, lobby, common areas, and amenities.

Stream Realty Partners, a national real estate services, development, and investment firm, leases the office space at the building. Managing Director Adam Showalter and Senior Vice President Jessica O’Hara represented the landlord in the transaction.

“Grumman/Butkus Associates’ long-term lease renewal is a great commitment to their employees and a testament to the upgrades we’ve made at 820 Davis Street,” said William R. Flatt at Free Market Ventures. “We are excited for the opportunities that lie ahead for this creative office space and appreciate Stream’s unique approach to leasing it.”

Downtown Evanston offers a host of new and historic office spaces housing world headquarters, growing companies, and innovative industries. 820 Davis Street is just one block from the Chicago Transit Authority’s Purple Line and a Metra Station.

“With recent building improvements and our pending renovation, Grumman/Butkus will utilize the office experience at 820 Davis as a resource to facilitate communication, collaboration, and client service,” said Chad Luning, President at Grumman/Butkus Associates. “Downtown Evanston’s amenities, access to transportation, and vibrancy make 820 Davis a great place to work.”
