The Fields is a multi-use redevelopment of the former warehouse space of iconic retailer Marshall Fields. Spread across 20 acres in Chicago's Logan Square, the 1.5M square foot building includes retail, industrial and commercial uses and boasts 123 apartment units, an onsite grocery store, self-storage and more. The Fields is looking to transform into a neighborhood destination for both tenants and the surrounding communities.
Built to meet the strenuous and changing demands of manufacturing and distribution, the exposed brick, concrete, and steel of The Fields hearken back to an era when titans of industry walked its floors. With large and flexible floor plates of up to 100k SF, soaring ceilings and windows, and robust infrastructure wedded to a state-of-the-art tech backbone, The Fields is ideal for dynamic companies that need all of their evolving space requirements to be supported within one building. Those who are inspired by authenticity, require flexibility, and want to be a part of a creative ecosystem, will thrive in The Fields.

WeWork’s IPO may have tanked, but the co-working industry is booming. National and local co-working companies are eating up more of Chicago's office space, and rents have risen by an average of 3.48% in just five years, citywide. Flexible office space shows no signs of slowing, and office developers need to catch on to the latest trends in order to compete.
With the millennial workforce came the open office floor plan, the digitzed common area and the rise of remote work. As Gen Z steps into the job market, the world of office design is in for another transformation. Companies rely on their office space to help court top-tier talent. What amenities are they craving, and which ones are passes? And most importantly, which ones should developers invest in to attract big-name tenants without breaking the bank?
