Properties such as 6300 N River Road in Rosemont, ArborLake Centre in Deerfield and 263 Shuman Boulevard in Naperville, recently completed significant base building and amenity renovations. While others such as Bell Works in Hoffman Estates, Westwood of Lisle, 2200 Cabot Drive in Lisle and the former Lucent campus in Naperville have recently begun improvements.
