Chicago Gets New York Coworking

Harbor Group International has just signed New York-based Serendipity Labs to open and manage a 30,000-square-foot co-working lounge and conference center on the mezzanine level and second floor of One South Wacker, its 40-story, 1.2-million-square-foot tower in the West Loop.

Although co-working spaces have proliferated across the US, this Serendipity Labs facility “is an important first for Chicago,” Arenas adds. One South Wacker is the first class A Chicago office building to incorporate a full-service shared workspace and conference center for its tenants and the public. Tenants know that today’s employees want, and increasingly expect, a variety of work options away from the traditional office desk, and Serendipity Labs can provide that.
