Call-center lease in Oak Brook
Check-cashing chain PLS Financial Services Inc. leased just under 47,000 square feet for a call center in west suburban Oak Brook. Chicago-based PLS signed a long-term deal for the space at 800 Jorie Blvd., part of a two-building complex controlled by a lender. The center should open by August, says Ken Crane, PLS’ vice president-real estate, who says it’s a consolidation of satellite locations and represents an expansion. With the deal, 800-810 Jorie, which totals about 194,000 square feet, is about 70 percent leased, according to figures provided by Jim Adler, an executive vice president at NAI Hiffman, which leases and manages the property. Mark Kolar of Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. represented PLS, which has locations in nine states and has more than 3,000 employees, according to its website.
