Event Summary

With 6.1 msf of office space being built by the end of 2020, Chicago looks poised to continue to be a top spot for companies, even without Amazon’s HQ2.

With McDonald’s HQ moving from the suburbs into the city, the West Loop looks poised to become a top economic zone in Chicago.

While this growth is of course great, it seems to be pushing some companies to look towards the suburbs for some rent relief.



With Class B and C office space having higher vacancy rates what concession can they make to keep these businesses in the city?

Join us as Chicago’s top developers take a deeper look at trends and growth patterns that impact office space throughout the city.

Please send event questions and topic/speaker recommendations to Noah Ackerman at

noah.ackerman@bisnow.com

1. How will developers look to build on the strong office sales that kicked off 2018?  

2. How will Chicago build on the momentum it has gained, even though it was not selected for Amazon's HQ2?

3. How will the West Loop try to continue to build momentum as they become a hot spot for offices? 

4. While demand for Class A office space continues to grow, how will Class B and C office space try to attract tenants? 

5. Will the growing price of office space in Chicago push more companies to look to the suburbs?
