Bell Works Chicagoland Signs Largest Office Tenant to Date 

Bell Works Chicagoland, the redeveloped former AT&T corporate campus in Hoffman Estates, has signed a long-term lease with Club Colors, making the company the building’s largest tenant to date. The branding and marketing company will occupy 52,056 square feet for its national headquarters beginning in May 2023. 

“Bell Works is welcoming an influx of tenants as more and more companies return to the office and see an opportunity to elevate their work environment,” said Ralph Zucker, president of Inspired by Somerset Development, the developer behind Bell Works Chicagoland.  

In addition to Club Colors, the complex has also signed office leases with Heritage-Crystal Clean, Platinum Home Mortgage, Headline Solar and other tenants. Earlier this month, Bell Works Chicagoland announced that Fairgrounds Craft Coffee & Tea would debut a new store concept at the complex. 

CBRE vice chairman Jon Springer represented Club Colors. Colliers principal Steve Kling represented Bell Works Chicagoland.
