Pinterest to Join Loop’s Roster of Tech Tenants

Pinterest has confirmed that it’s planning a move to the West Loop. The San Francisco-based tech company, which provides virtual bulletin boards for users, has committed to 30,000 square feet at JP Morgan Asset Management’s 111 W. Canal St.

Currently, Pinterest’s Chicago offices are located at 320 W. Ohio St. in River North, where it set up shop with a single employee four years ago. “Chicago is an important and growing office for Pinterest,” a company spokesman told Connect Media. “We’re excited to take this next step for Pinterest in Chicago, as we continue to support some of our most strategic relationships with brands and agencies.”

The move is likely to occur by the end of this year, the spokesman said. Pinterest becomes the latest in a series of tech firms to expand their Loop office presence in recent months, a roster that has also included Facebook and Google.
