Franklin Partners Unveils Redevelopment Plans for Former OfficeMax Headquarters in Naperville, Illinois
NAPERVILLE, ILL. — Franklin Partners has unveiled its redevelopment plans for the former OfficeMax headquarters in Naperville. Known as The Shuman, the five-story office building, located at 263 Shuman Blvd., will include a 30,000-square-foot amenity space. This includes a dining hall, in-house barista, game room, golf simulator and bike room. Franklin Partners acquired the 350,000-square-foot building in a joint venture with Bixby Bridge Capital in April. The building had been vacant since 2014 when OfficeMax, now a subsidiary of Office Depot, moved its headquarters to Boca Raton, Fla. Francis Prock and David Florent of Colliers International will market the renovated property for lease. Wright Heerema Architects is the project architect. Construction is underway, but a timeline for completion was not disclosed.
