Northwestern Mutual Chicagoland has just moved its network office to an updated location at 1901 Butterfield Road Suite 300 in Downers Grove. The transition was made a bit easier with the new space relocating to another floor in the same building.

The new space has been under construction since January 2018, and officially opened for business on March 26th. Northwestern Mutual Chicagoland is occupying 21,835 square feet, while other tenants will occupy the remaining space on the third floor.

Ryan Kramer, managing partner for Northwestern Mutual Chicagoland is very excited about the move, especially in the ways in which it will facilitate servicing their clients and showcasing their values and culture. “We were attracted to the fresh new look and feel, and had plans to incorporate several new and exciting elements around the space. The transition has been fairly smooth, as we remain in the same building that we have occupied in recent years. This makes the transition simple for our clients as well, as it is still in an easily accessible location.”

The new space features open spaces with plenty of natural light, updated modern color schemes and furniture, and an exclusive separate suite for wealth management advisors. The space will have several new conference rooms, phoning rooms, a wellness room and a learning suite named after the core values of the firm.

The Downers Grove office is the main network office to the Kramer Financial Group, which includes Downers Grove, Naperville, Schaumburg, and Chicago. Later this year, the Chicago office will be moving to a new space as well, allowing ample room for the growth that will continue within the agency.


Northwestern Mutual Chicagoland has one hundred twenty Financial Representatives in addition to a network of twelve specialists, offering a broad range of products and services to help clients plan for their financial futures.

JC Anderson is the general contractor for construction of the 21,835 square foot space. The architecture of the new space was designed by Whitney Architects.
