Grant Thornton Gets Its Name Out There

Starting in 2015, Grant Thornton will be moving into the Chicago Title & Trust Co. building but more importantly will get naming rights meaning that 161. N. Clark St. will be known as the Grant Thornton something.

But what? GTower? The Chipman Center? Big GT? Presumably all of these plus whatever else you can come up with. 

The former Chicago Title & Trust Co. building in the Loop is getting a new anchor tenant and a new name. Accounting firm Grant Thornton LLP is moving its headquarters to 161 N. Clark St., a deal that includes naming rights at the 50-story tower. The 137,000-square-foot lease fills a big hole for New York-based owner Tishman Speyer Properties L.P., after Chicago Title moved last month to 10 S. LaSalle St. The 1.1-million-square-foot tower is expected to be about 95 percent occupied when Grant Thornton begins its lease there in 2015.
And you can bet there will be a big "Welcome Dynamic Clients" door mat.
