SONNY+ASH is an award winning visual communication studio specializing in 3D (and virtual reality) computer graphics for the design industry. Their projects can be as small as a single rendering or as large as a full scale production of a film or animation.
A few years ago, as a budding technology start-up, they began renting one of our smaller spaces on Chicago’s northwest side. They were a small team, but they began to grow leaps and bounds, which had them bursting at the seams of their office. We saw that they were rapidly growing and began aligning a larger loft office to fit their business needs. They desired a creative loft environment with high ceilings and ample power. The space also needed a contemporary touch, since they frequently pitched projects to new clients at their office. We knew we had the space for them.
The transition between spaces was effortless. When speaking with Sonny, he recalled, “This was the first time a landlord shook my hand and gave me a key before we had all the paperwork done. I’ve never had that much trust in a landlord before.” We believe in providing each of our tenants with a personal approach to their tenancy. As a boutique firm, we have the flexibility to accommodate our client’s needs on a case-by-case basis. We gave SONNY+ASH a rental rate they felt comfortable with, so they would be able to scale and grow properly as a company. It has been harmony ever since!
The first time I worked with Lichter, I thought our space was the only one they owned.
Our personal approach to commercial real estate upholds our mission as a boutique firm. We deliver high quality space, while also developing strong partnerships with our tenants. The team at SONNY+ASH initially assumed that we were a small company, because of our detailed and personal approach to leasing. It was later on they realized how big our company actually was.
