enjoy work

Onward Coworking is a cozy, casual coworking space located in the West Loop. We provide flexible month-to-month desk and office rentals in a unique, industrial timber loft space professionally designed to accommodate a number of different working styles and preferences.

Onward Coworking revolves around three simple elements: dynamic people, inspiring workspace, and outstanding location. But Onward is more than a cool place to work, it's an evolution of work itself. It's a fresh new perspective on how we can influence the environment that surrounds your work to improve your happiness at work. It's a push onward, forward, and ahead to change our working world for the better.

So stay a while, check us out… and enjoy work.

Clean space, good lighting, and a good mix of professionals.

Free La Colombe coffee, ample work space, and only a block or so from the Morgan L stop.

We’re a diverse group — coworking is most fun when you’re surrounded by people with different talents and expertise. Here’s a sampling of the people that work at Onward: social media experts, advertisers, editors, lawyers, public relations people, architects, engineers, non-profiteers, video producers, creative directors, branding experts, digital marketers, software developers, financial consultants, sales professionals, IT consultants, and so on. Many of these individuals are seasoned entrepreneurs, small business owners, independent contractors, or remotely located professionals.

Ha, that’s funny. No, you don’t have to apply. But we would like to meet you to make sure you’re a human and not a robot.

Yep. Limited building hours would really put a damper on the whole flexible workspace thing, ya know?

Most definitely. Onward is located 2 blocks from the Morgan-Lake L stop served by the Pink and Green lines – this is 2 stops away from the loop. We are also near the major train stations, Union Station and Ogilvie, and accessible by a number of bus lines that serve the area.

We have an indoor bike storage area so you can keep your bike off the ruff-and-tumble streets of the West Loop. Kidding about the ruff-and-tumble part.

No limits or extra costs…not really into the whole nickel-and-diming thing.

It’s awesome and has spectacular views. Perfect for lunch or an afternoon hangout.

We show the space by appointment only. Contact us if you want to come check it out.

You’re welcome to try it out for a day to make sure it suits you. Contact us and we’ll set something up.

Yes, of course. Members are courteous and conscious of those around them when on the phone. We also have Phone Rooms for sensitive or personal calls.

Card reader access at the main building entrance and our suite entrance protect our stuff and keep bad guys out. We also have security cameras in the space to monitor your productivity. Just kidding, only for security.

It’s pretty darn good. We get it from our neighbors, La Colombe Torrefaction. If you’ve heard of them you know what we’re talking about. If you haven’t, well, you should probably check them out.

What a fascinating question – yes! The fabric and glass privacy screens can all be taken down and reworked to create a very open and collaborative workspace.
