About Chicago

Chicago, located on Lake Michigan in Illinois, is among the largest cities in America. Commonly referred to as the “Windy City,” it is the third most populous city in the United States and the largest city in the Midwest. The quality of life, large and diversified economy, growing talent pool and prime position in the heart of the country all make Chicago an excellent location for businesses of all sizes. Coworking and office space options are available for lease throughout the city and surrounding suburbs on Truss.

More affordable than large coastal cities, Chicago has one of the best quality-of-life to cost-of-living ratios in the nation. The city of Chicago is renowned for its architecture, including buildings such as the John Hancock Center, Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), Tribune Tower and the Chicago Board of Trade Building. Chicago is also known for its world-class museums, dining, vibrant theater scene and iconic sports teams. The city boasts numerous beaches, a bustling lakefront path and green spaces such as Millennium Park, Lincoln Park and the 606. Other popular attractions include Navy Pier, the Chicago Riverwalk and beloved outdoor art installation “The Bean” (Cloud Gate).

The Chicago metro area is among the largest and most diverse economies in the nation. Key industries include business services, biotech, energy, fintech, food processing, healthcare, information technology, transportation and manufacturing. Chicago has a strong talent pool with a growing amount of tech talent in part from nearby schools such as Northwestern University, the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Chicago. Tech is Chicago’s fastest growing sector. There are many resources available for entrepreneurs and startups including numerous accelerators and incubator hubs such as 1871, a community of entrepreneurs focused on innovation, as well as in sectors such as healthcare, music, film and manufacturing.

Preparing to Lease Office Space in Chicago

Whether downtown or in the surrounding suburbs, there is a variety of commercial office space available in Chicago. Spaces for lease include coworking, shared office space, flexible office, executive office suites, sublease and direct office space.

When searching for office space, it’s important to understand your office needs. Business owners should set a budget for office space. Knowing how your team works together will help determine layout needs like conference rooms, private offices or phone booths. You may also have specialized space requirements, such as a need for a server room, reception area or even a nap room. In terms of location, you’ll want to approach your search with a few neighborhood preferences. Many business owners choose office space locations that are commuter-friendly or close to clients. Don’t worry if you aren’t set on your office preferences. All you need to get started with Truss is an idea about what neighborhoods you’d like to locate in, your employee headcount and your budget. After talking with your local Truss broker, you can always change your preferences. When you sign up with Truss, you instantly see spaces tailored to your specifications and get matched with a local Truss broker who will guide you through the search-to-lease process.

It’s important for companies of all sizes to have a partner with expertise in their coworking or office space search. Tenant rep brokers represent the best interest of their clients, or tenants, and negotiate on their behalf. Properties are typically represented by a listing broker, who represents the best interest of the property. There is no cost to work with a tenant rep broker. They work for you but are paid a commission by the property or coworking provider for filling the space. All Truss brokers are tenant rep brokers.

Office Space Listings in Chicago

There’s an office space for every business need and sensibility in Chicago. Whether you seek the bustle of downtown or prefer the greater Chicago area, you can find a space that matches your budget, layout and location preferences with ease using Truss.

Truss offers available traditional office spaces, flex spaces, office subleases, private offices and coworking all in one place.

Our database includes offices within buildings of all designations, including Class A, Class B and Class C, defined here by the Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA):

Class A - A classification used to describe an office building with rents in the top 30 to 40 percent of the market. These high-end buildings are well-located, easily accessible and close to retail, business services and restaurants. For example, a law firm might consider Class A office space a necessity as it projects the appearance of a thriving practice to its clients.

Class B - A classification used to describe an office building with rents that are based on those of Class A and Class C buildings. Class B buildings are moderately well located and accessible, and somewhat close to retail, business services and restaurants. For example, a back-office for a firm would be a good candidate for a Class B building.

Class C - A classification used to describe an office building with rents in the bottom 10 to 20 percent of the market. Class C buildings are typically older buildings in desirable locations or established buildings in less desirable locations. Class C buildings are ideal for startups and small businesses looking for more value for their money.

Chicago Office Building Sizes:

  • Low-rise building: Fewer than 7 stories above ground level
  • Mid-rise building: Between 7 and 25 stories above ground level
  • High-rise building: More than 25 stories above ground level

As defined by the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP)

Truss offers office spaces in varying states, from completely built-out to more customizable spaces.

As the name implies, a 2nd generation office is a built-out space that was previously occupied. They generally boast a lower price point than brand new offices, and many are as good as brand new.

Spec suites are newly built-out spaces that have not been occupied. These spaces typically boast a higher price point, but the spaces are typically move-in ready and include everything from furniture to wiring.

Shell space is, as it sounds, a blank slate. The space comes in a “white-box” condition and you can fully customize the space to your exact needs. For the build-out, a property will give you an allowance to build out the space yourself, or the landlord will give you a budget and build it for you.

Chicago Coworking Options

Coworking space, or co-working space, has tripled in the Chicago metro area in the last four years. Small businesses and startups can find a variety of move-in ready coworking options downtown (CBD) and in the surrounding neighborhoods and suburbs. 

Coworking offers a variety of leasing options depending on size and need:

Workspace / Workstation – Also known as a “hot desk,” a coworking membership to use a shared office common area without a reserved workstation

Dedicated desk – A reserved workstation in a shared, open office area

Private office – Individual office suite in the coworking location

Team headquarters - Options for larger companies who are looking for custom buildouts or dedicated floors; options vary by provider

Coworking offers a level of flexibility that is especially beneficial to high-growth companies. Workspaces and offices are typically move-in ready, fulfilling basic furniture needs. Most coworking centers also include basic amenities, such as reception areas, business services such as printing, bookable conference rooms, lounge space and a kitchen/cafe area.

Many companies enjoy the creative and community-driven environment that coworking offers. Coworking is also a great next step for anyone upgrading from a virtual office. Where a virtual office may only provide an address and some basic services, a coworking membership expands those offerings with the community, along with a dedicated working space. A coworking membership often provides access to other coworking locations in the provider’s network.

Truss works with 35+ coworking providers, representing 126 coworking spaces in Chicago. The Truss marketplace is the only platform where you can compare office space and coworking space side by side to find what works best for you. Truss brokers are coworking experts and can help you negotiate a great deal - all at no cost to you.

Chicago’s Best Neighborhoods for Office Space

Whether you’re looking for office space in the city of Chicago or surrounding suburbs, there are many different neighborhoods and communities to choose from. Once you sign up for Truss you’ll be able to drop pins in your favorite areas to compare your office space options.

The city of Chicago is comprised of 77 community areas, each with one or more distinct neighborhoods. Downtown Chicago encompasses a cluster of neighborhoods including The Chicago Loop, or “The Loop,” named for the elevated CTA train tracks that encircle the area. The Loop makes up most of the central business district (CBD) of the city and the main part of its downtown. It’s home to banks, including the Federal Reserve Bank, investment and law firms, courts of law as well as many city, state, and federal agencies. Other popular downtown neighborhoods for coworking and office space include River North, North Michigan Ave/Streeterville, West Loop and South Loop.

Lofted River North office space - Truss

Located just north of The Loop on the banks of the Chicago River, River North is a creative and entrepreneurial hub. River North boasts the second-largest district of art galleries in the country. It's also home to theMART, also known as The Merchandise Mart, a massive business center for leading manufacturers and interior design showrooms, as well as emerging tech startups and Fortune 500 companies.

Part of Chicago’s Near North Side, the bustling Streeterville area is known for its shopping, healthcare facilities, university campuses and attractions such as Navy Pier and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Streetville is also home to the “Magnificent Mile” on North Michigan Avenue, Chicago's commercial epicenter, featuring upscale shopping and dining options.

The West Loop is one of Chicago’s fastest-growing neighborhoods for residential and commercial space. Demand for office and coworking space is especially high in the Fulton Market District of the West Loop, where Chicago’s “Restaurant Row” on Randolph Street draws crowds daily. Trendy nightlife and boutique hotels such as The Hoxton and Soho House keep the evenings buzzing. Many startups, venture capital firms and even major corporations like Google and McDonald's lease office and coworking space in the West Loop.

Chicago’s South Loop is known for its college campuses, but recently has become a residential and commercial hub. South Loop also includes Printer’s Row, McCormick Place convention center, Pilsen and Chinatown. Pilsen and Chinatown offer affordable creative lofts, open floor plan offices and shared office spaces.

The Goose Island neighborhood and its surrounding areas feature up-and-coming office buildings to bring new business to the area. North of Goose Island, the plans for Lincoln Yards promise to bring more change to the area. The massive mixed-use development project is expected to transform more than 50 acres on both sides of the North Branch of the Chicago River.

Office space, whether commercial space or a flexible office, is also available in some of Chicago’s more residential neighborhoods. Aptly named as home to the largest park in Chicago, Lincoln Park offers plenty of live, work and play options. It's also home to the DePaul University campus. To the west of Lincoln Park, part of the greater West Town community, Bucktown and Wicker Park are dining, shopping and nightlife hubs, but recent developments make them a viable option for creative office and coworking space.

The North Side — Ravenswood areas are up-and-coming for office space. The area is dominated by residential and retail space properties, but older loft buildings have been converted to bespoke office spaces. The live-work-play mindset is not only a lifestyle choice — these areas also offer lower rental rates that are especially attractive to small businesses.

The North Shore / Evanston neighborhoods have long been viewed as bedroom communities of Chicago. Many offices in Evanston serve Northwestern University and small businesses seeking affordable, conveniently located office space.

Many businesses in the Chicago metro area find suburban office locations preferable to the Central Business District (CBD). Suburban offices are more conveniently located for those who live in the suburbs, and typically offer lower rental rates. Leasing suburban office space is also ideal for businesses needing to locate near industrial buildings. Popular suburban neighborhoods outside of the North Shore area include Naperville, Downers Grove, Oakbrook, Itasca as well as Rosemont and the Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) area.
