The coworking offices at 8745 West Higgins are ideally placed to fulfil such needs, just 7-minute drive from O’Hare International Airport – or a 24-minute ride on the Blue Line. Offices are fully furnished and move-in ready, with an on-site business manager ready to assist both you and your clients. Members have access to conference rooms, parking, recording equipment for podcasts, as well as a fitness center.

Next Property Management

Address: 620 North LaSalle Street, Chicago, IL 60654

Every adaptive reuse of a building tells a story. For decades, 620 North LaSalle housed one of the top sportswear retailers in the Midwest – Morrie Mages, later known as MC Sports.

The renovation efforts included the installation of all new windows, two new high-speed elevators and cabs, new electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems and a large rooftop deck.

Prospective members touring 620 North LaSalle today will find a modern coworking space, ideally suited for a wide range of businesses – from startups or entrepreneurs to law firms; or tech companies. The building features timber loft ceilings, exposed brick and large windows, along with a fully furnished rooftop terrace, on-site parking and bike storage.
