IWG Opening Four New Flexible Workspaces in Chicago Area

Hybrid work solutions provider IWG is opening four new flexible workspaces in the Chicago area, including two on the city’s North Side, as the demand for hybrid working continues to grow.  

IWG’s new Illinois locations will be located at:  

  • 1200 N Ashland Ave. in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood (Spaces) 
  • 1918 N. Mendell St. in Bucktown (HQ) 
  • 1452 Merchant Dr., Algonquin, IL (Regus)  
  • 12 Wolf Creek Drive, Swansea, Il (Regus) 

“We are delighted to be working with new partners to bring the numerous benefits of hybrid working to businesses, local communities and employees in the area,” said Mark Dixon, IWG Founder and CEO. “Over the past two and a half years, demand for hybrid working solutions has rapidly increased as workers enjoy a significantly improved work/life balance with less time spent commuting and employers benefitting from substantial cost savings and the ability to recruit from a wider pool of talent.”
