Ensono Completes Downers Grove Lease Transactions Totaling 200,000 Square Feet

Thursday, July 28, 2016

In simultaneous transactions, Ensono, a leading hybrid IT services company, has executed leases for 199,611 square feet of office and data center space, further demonstrating its commitment to west suburban Downers Grove, Ill. JLL provided tenant representation services for Ensono, and will direct the buildout of the reconfigured space.

Represented by Ben Erskine and Chris Rohrer, both Managing Directors at JLL, Ensono has leased 84,259 square feet of space at 3333 Finley Road and 115,352 square feet of data center space – the entire building – at 1501 Opus Place.

In reconfiguring and consolidating its space, Ensono gains considerable efficiencies over the space originally occupied by Acxiom IT at 3333 Finley Road. The new environment has been strategically designed to facilitate new standards for associate collaboration and client engagement, underscoring Ensono’s vision, mission and values. The new look will be punctuated by flexibility, state-of-the-art technology and creative work settings.

“The new standards for our office space, and the world-class environment they promote, reflect our commitment to our associate and client experiences, further underscoring the evolution of our brand and identity. We are here to serve as a trusted leader and manage costly, labor-intensive IT operations so that our clients can focus on the strategic priorities to move their business forward,” said Brian Klingbeil, COO, Ensono.

At 3333 Finley Road, Ensono will occupy floors 2, 3 and 4 in an open-plan space that fosters collaboration and provides for a variety of work styles. Features of the space, slated for completion this October, include:

  • An interactive client experience center to support business growth,
  • Modular workstations for employees including sit/stand and treadmill desks,
  • A large café for team gatherings,
  • 30 conference rooms with room schedulers, video conferencing and display monitor technology,
  • 195 touchdown seats (phone rooms, open huddle, cafés, hotel workstations),
  • Refreshed design elements such as concrete floors, open ceilings and LED lighting and
  • Inboard offices for senior leadership and huddle rooms for increased collaboration.

“Ensono’s strategy in modernizing its space, and rolling out new workplace standards, will translate to a better workplace environment, enhanced employee productivity and business efficiencies,” Erskine said. “This is an ideal outcome for Ensono’s employees and clients and will surely be a catalyst for future business growth.”
