Several suburban companies were instrumental in the successful relocation of The Daily Herald Media Group's headquarters at 95 W. Algonquin Road in Arlington Heights this month.
The 26,700 square-foot, two floor build-out involved a relocation from the iconic five story building located two blocks east at 155 E. Algonquin Road in Arlington Heights. The new offices house the newsroom, advertising, customer service, administration and IT groups. The Daily Herald's printing facility remains along the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway in Schaumburg.
With a desire to stay in Arlington Heights and working within a tight time frame, Elgin-based Pancor Construction and Development worked with Daily Herald staff to initiate planning and construction on the interior build out, completing the project on time and on budget for a May 1 occupancy. The Pancor project team completed design, architecture and construction activities while assisting with IT and building services. Pete Nelson, along with project manager Katy Liston and site manager Dash Abazi, worked with the Daily Herald corporate staff to implement key revisions and provide an updated functionality to the new facility.
The Daily Herald's building was listed for sale in May 2017 and sold to Chicago-based Bradford Allen earlier this year. William Novelli Jr., senior vice president for CBRE in Oak Brook, handled the listing and sale. David VenHorst, managing broker and partner with Tenant Advisors, Inc. in Schaumburg, worked with the Daily Herald management team to find its new headquarters and negotiate a lease. Kenneth Stone, senior commercial manager with Mid-West Moving and Storage in Elk Grove Village, coordinated the move and the clean out of the 155 E. Algonquin Road facility.
