Dean Foods’ corporate headquarters had been located at 3600 River Road in Franklin Park, Illinois since the 1920’s. Dean Foods was in a robust expansion mode, acquiring many smaller competitors, and needed both more space and more modern space for employee recruitment and retention purposes. Howard Dean authorized Mike Bishop, now at Alliance, to conduct a suburban wide search for an expanded 175,000 SF office requirement. The decision was made to relocate the HQ operation to a finish-to-suit building under construction located at 9500 West Bryn Mawr in Rosemont, close by the River Road facility.
