Sterling Bay excels in build-to-suit properties developed to a tenant’s specifications. From site location and design to construction, we can meet your budget and your timeframe. 


At our core we are creative thinkers, a skillset that serves us well whether we are designing a building, structuring a transaction or negotiating a lease. Our unmatched industry relationships help us find the right tenants for the right space. We take pride in the fact that we are known for our credibility, our ability to deliver and our quick decision-making. 

Property Management

Sterling Bay’s property management professionals take pride in being excellent stewards for our buildings and for those who inhabit them. Our personalized, hands-on management style and attention to detail translate into quick response times and around-the-clock availability for our tenants. 


The legal process is vital to any real estate transaction. Moving through it is much easier when you’re led by experts. Sterling Bay’s in-house legal department knows what to anticipate and how to respond quickly. Our pragmatic team of professionals assists with decision-making and problem-solving while reducing timelines and lowering legal costs. 

Asset Management

Sterling Bay knows that it’s crucial to have real-time market knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the financial elements of each development. Whether it’s analyzing a potential investment or lease, we are poised to act in the best interest of our developments and investors. A thorough understanding of all operational aspects of a transaction ensures superior execution and unparalleled results.


Our hospitality division has deep relationships in the restaurant and hotel industries in Chicago and across the U.S. Our buildings are home to renowned restauranteurs such as the Tao Group, Hogsalt Hospitality and Boka Restaurant Group. Sterling Bay’s hospitality portfolio also features partnerships with prominent boutique hotel operators, including Ace Hotel and Joie de Vivre. 


Style is subjective. Quality is not. Each Sterling Bay development is unique, yet all share one thing in common: an aesthetic that demonstrates a pride of ownership and appeals to a targeted audience. When giving new life to space, we often turn to the original character of the building, using reclaimed materials such as cedar from water towers and decorative stone from facades. As a result, our artistry and passion pay dividends by attracting potential tenants and buyers. 


Great ideas remain just that until they’re given structure and shape. We recognize that each Sterling Bay tenant has a distinctive mission with its own operational requirements. Our in-house architects work closely with potential tenants to lay out optimal work spaces. From financial and tech companies to marketing and law firms, our team of architects is the catalyst of turning our buildings into exceptional creative environments. 


Sterling Bay has both general contracting and development management capabilities. Our professionals can lead you through the entire construction process, whether it's a ground-up construction job or an office build-out. From design planning to value engineering to opening your doors for business in your new offices, we can efficiently manage your project from start to finish by overseeing a team of our trusted subcontractors.
