One North LaSalle


One North LaSalle was at an inflection point. The building had undergone some radical changes that they needed to communicate to the brokerage community. They had a new approach to suites, had completed the long awaited renovations on the facade, made renovations inside that made it brighter and more modern, and they had a new way of doing deals that was much faster. They needed a marketing campaign that would help them accelerate leasing.

We created a relevant and engaging campaign that extended to a strategic, integrated program which included both digital elements and street marketing elements. The campaign was a play on “click bait,” with outrageous headlines that enticed brokers to click. The custom affinity targeted digital ads generated 653,486 impressions, and the remarketing digital ads generated 3,985. Leasing activity during the period the digital ads were running resulted in an occupancy increase from 75% to 85%. The forecasted increase in property value is in the range of $10M.
