In 2012, Chicago was listed as an alpha global city and is a major worldwide financial centre making it an attractive option for companies looking to set up business in the United States.
The city of Chicago hosts 12 Fortune Global 500 companies and 17 Financial Times 500 companies.
It also claims one Dow 30 company: aerospace giant Boeing, which moved its headquarters from Seattle to the Chicago Loop in 2001.
Two more Dow 30 companies, Kraft Foods and McDonald's are in the Chicago suburbs, as are Sears Holdings Corporation and the technology spin-offs of Motorola.
The most expensive area of the city for serviced office space is The Loop area with prices ranging from $600 to $1000 per person, per month.
The further away from The Loop companies are willing to travel, and out into the suburbs, the cheaper the space.
However, when looking at serviced offices it is always worth keeping in mind that these costs usually cover amenities, which may include internet, meeting rooms, reception services etc., and as such can offer great value for money.

We are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more depending on the specifics.
