Churchill Family Partnership
For 7 years Alter Asset Management has provided property management services to one of the country's leading private real estate investment partnerships. Located in Schaumburg, IL, the Churchill Family Partnership portfolio was previously owned by KBS Realty Advisors, for whom AAM had provided property management services for 8 years prior to the sale to Churchill Family Partnership, L.P. When ownership changed hands, Alter Asset Management assured that operations remained stable and that tenants didn’t experience any hiccups in their experience of the asset.
AMCOL International Corporation
AMCOL International Corporation, a leading producer and marketer of minerals and polymers, needed a property management firm to care for the company’s –70,000 SF LEED Silver-certified headquarters in Hoffman Estates, IL. The visionary building brings AMCOL’s staff together in a sustainable setting to foster collaboration and strengthen innovation. Over the last 2 years, AAM has treated the building like its own -- maintaining its stunning buildout and atrium spaces made from biodegradable and recycled materials, its eco-friendly infrastructure, and its landscaping of native planted bioSwales, rain-gardens and prairie plants. All while serving the diverse constituencies that make up AMCOL’s operations, from sales and marketing to its operational, administrative and R&D teams, each one with its own unique requirements. All of this done on time and on budget resulting in renewals of AAM’s service contract.
THE NORTHERN TRUST BANK
For more than 20 years AAM has provided facility management services to The Northern Trust Bank, one of America's leading financial services and wealth management firms. It started with a single building and today we manage 15 branch facilities for them ranging in size from 1,000 square feet to 15,000 square feet. In September 2011, Northern Trust awarded Alter Asset Management with their Really Outstanding Vender Award (ROVA).
Like its award-winning London counterpart, Roka Akor Chicago has been voted “Best Sushi Restaurant” in the country by a number of critics. It also received a MICHELIN Guide Chicago 2014 Recommended Rating. When the company was looking to create its Chicago address, Alter did site visits to the Southwest flagship in Scottsdale, AZ to study its operations and logistics. Working with the restaurant's design and management teams, we ultimately designed a comprehensive plan that created a mezzanine over the kitchen area for their critical storage needs, allowed Roka to install their own (totally separate from the base building) power and HVAC systems and facilitated a cohesive signage program with the building owner.
Keefer’s Restaurant is a Michelin rated steakhouse which has been recognized by the critics of the Food Network, Wine Spectator and Playboy Magazine, among many others. For more than a decade AAM has been the steward of its marquee location at the corner of Dearborn and Kinzie Streets in downtown Chicago. This includes coordinating the daily operations and scheduling of the building repair & maintenance projects so as not to interfere with the business hours of a busy restaurant.
