Bell Works in Hoffman Estates to lease second wave of ‘ready-to-wear’ office suites

Bell Works Chicagoland — the business and residential redevelopment of the former AT&T corporate campus in Hoffman Estates — has announced the availability of a second wave of “ready-to-wear” office space, now that the first wave is nearly booked.

The self-described “metroburb’s” Ready-to-Wear 2.0 development consists of another 20,000 square feet of office suite space.

The first phase totaled 23,628 square feet, of which 20,913 square feet is spoken for by a variety of tenants.

Those tenants include Clover Imaging Group, Stoltman Law Offices, CPATAX Services, RiskSmith Insurance, CPA Advisors Group, Berkshire Hathaway Starck Real Estate, corporate real estate firm ICG CRE, consultative marketing firm The Next Unicorn, Victor Construction Co. Inc., furniture dealership LinkSpace, and Mosquito Hunters.

Bell Works also operates coLab, a 15,000-square-foot leasable coworking facility.

“Submarkets across suburban Chicagoland such as Hoffman Estates are experiencing an incredible demand for office spaces that are both conveniently located and enable workers to spend less of their quality time commuting without sacrificing on design, layout and amenities,” Ralph Zucker, president of New Jersey-based Inspired by Somerset Development, said in a statement. “The metroburb’s Ready-To-Wear spaces cater directly to that need, with an offering that fosters a sense of community and belonging, designed specifically for each tenant as they grow and scale their business.”

Bell Works Chicagoland also includes 60,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space.

Fairgrounds Craft Coffee and Tea will expand its early kiosk presence at Bell Works with its 5,743-square-foot Fairgrounds World’s Fair cafe and restaurant that’s expected to open later this fall.

The development also is home to the 3,300-square-foot It Gym, and plans are pending for residential additions.
