Bell Works

The Ameritech Center in Hoffman Estates, originally built as the former AT&T research facility, is being transformed into Bell Works Chicagoland— a destination for business and culture unlike any other in the region. By combining world-class workspaces, curated dining options, one-of-a-kind retail experiences and much more, it will become everything a great downtown can offer, all under one roof. We call it: The Metroburb.

WHY THIS MATTERS

What You'll Learn:

  • How much of a suburban migration is taking place? What towns are seeing the most growth?
  • Has the return of people moving back to the city impacted rental rates in the suburbs?
  • Has the return to office materialized in the Chicago suburbs? How has this impacted vacancy rates and development activity? 
  • How have work from home policies affected the need for traditional suburban office space? What does the office of the future look like?
  • As industrial activity continues to rise in the Chicago suburbs, where is there opportunity for new developments?
  • Has retail started to recover from the impacts of the pandemic? How is retail evolving?
