Chicago (July 22, 2015) – Seneca Real Estate Group’s ( principal and director of marketing and leasing, Joe Padorr, represented Chicago-based landlord Harris Properties in the 10-year lease of it’s 2,300-square-foot property at 3357 N. Southport.

Construction of this single-story retail building, which features scissor trusses to allow for high ceilings and skylights, was completed in late 2014. The tenant, Chicago Health Medical Group ( was represented by Patrick Owens, Transwestern (

Padorr also represented landlord Harris Properties in the lease of 910 square feet to Fleet Feet ( at 3359 N. Southport in 2014. Joe Sauer, Sierra US (, represented the tenant.

In 2013, Padorr represented landlord Derrig Properties in the leasing of 10,000 square feet to Gap at 3416 N. Southport, 4,000 square feet to Athleta, 3,000 square feet to Noodles and Co., and 8,000 square feet to Southport Fitness at 3415 N. Southport.

“Retail in Southport’s epicenter – between Roscoe and Addison – has seen robust growth over the last three years due to the sub-market’s strong income demographics of its upwardly mobile singles and young families that live in the Lakeview neighborhood,” noted Padorr.  “We were among the first to ink national tenant deals on the street following the recession and momentum has been a key component to the area’s continued retail growth.”

8.15 Seneca Real Estate Group Brings Taco Bell to Loyola Sub-Market

ROGERS PARK— Undecided college freshman may want to give Loyola University a second thought before it’s too late — because come this winter, they could be among the first class of a brand new Taco Bell’s Chicago alumni.

Tuesday it was announced that the national taco (and now breakfast) chain, known as pioneers in the late-night “fourth meal” movement, signed a 10-year lease at the former 1,413-square-foot Red Mango space as part of The Morgan at Loyola Station, 6460 N. Sheridan Rd.

Joe Padorr, of Seneca Real Estate Group, said while there was not yet a solid opening date, the franchisee hoped to open by the end of the year.

“The Loyola area sub-market was a strong focus for Taco Bell because restaurants do particularly well among the college-aged, late-night crowd,” Padorr said.  “And of course this will give Loyola’s dynamic community even more dining options.”

Work has yet to begin on transforming the space into an official Taco Bell, Padorr said.

Padorr also said the franchise owner is “an experienced group with multiple” fast-casual dining brands.
