Coming in October: Our annual Coolest Offices feature. This Crain's Chicago Business report spotlights the best-designed new offices in Chicago that have sharp design, originality and functionality. An office cannot just look cool—it must serve the functions of the company housed there.
To be eligible, an office—which should be located in the Chicago metropolitan area—must have opened or been rehabbed after July 1, 2016.
To get started, if you have a Crain's Chicago Business account, click the application link and sign in to your account. If you do not have an account, you will be asked to create one before you can proceed with the nomination form.
To submit an office for consideration, there is a nomination fee of $199, which must be paid before the nomination can be formally submitted.
The nomination fee ensures that your office will be considered for inclusion in the final published story; it does not ensure your office will automatically be included.
To address technical issues with the submission form or payment process, please contact our customer service department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-812-1590.
Please note that honorees chosen for the 2018 list will be notified by phone or email before Oct. 1, 2018.
