Flexible office provider Industrious will open a new location in Chicago’s Willis Tower next year.
The new 52,000 square foot space is part of the company’s over 600,000 square feet of recently announced or opened spaces in 2020. The firm has signed a management agreement with EQ Office where it will outfit the space with flexible offices and other common area amenities that abide by current health and safety practices.
Willis Tower is currently undergoing a restoration project that will include 125,000 square feet of amenities, a 30,000 square foot outdoor terrace and garden, as well as 300,000 square feet of retail and dining options in the base of the building.
“Moving forward, the office is going to need to be somewhere people want to be, and EQ has done an incredible job of making Willis Tower somewhere workers would want to spend their days,” said Jamie Hodari, CEO and co-founder of Industrious. “What we do at Industrious is an essential part of that, plugging Willis Tower into a broader Chicago network that puts power in employees’ hands to choose where to work, and when to work there. The Industrious at Willis Tower is going to be the best workplace in a city full of great workplaces.”
