Christine focuses solely on downtown Chicago and has been involved with The Alter Group’s 17-story, 385,000 RSF flagship River North office building, 20 West Kinzie, since its initial construction in 2000. Christine was an integral part of the launch and opening of the property, as she worked side by side with the development team. Christine created the standards and procedures for this, their first downtown Chicago office/hotel high-rise. The management team was sensitive to the various occupancies in this multi-use building including retail, hotel and office. Communication, coordination and scheduling has always been key to the building’s smooth operations and tenant relationships. Christine was also involved with the opening of the Alter Group’s nearby 111 West Illinois and still oversees the operation of this property. In addition, Christine has participated in complex matters such as the vertical subdivision and sale of the hotel portion of 20 West Kinzie and the sale of a portion of 111 West Illinois. A Certified Property Manager (CPM) from IREM and a Real Property Administrator (RPA) with BOMA, she holds a Bachelor of Science from Northern Illinois University.
