Discover What's New and Interesting in Our Backyard

Chicago is home to 2.7 million residents and is third largest metropolis in the U.S. Although the city has experienced a slow population decline in recent years, it remains a global center for business, with strong representation in the finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications and transportation industries.

The Chicago commercial real estate market is supported by new development that has resulted from an influx of educated millennials to the city’s expanding urban core. Chicago was also recently named the country’s greenest city, with 66 percent of its office building footprint qualified as green, according to the annual Green Building Adoption Index study by CBRE and Maastricht University. As investors continue to seek green building certifications, Chicago is well-poised for continued growth.

Looking ahead, the future of Chicago’s commercial real estate market appears bright. Its highly skilled workforce, diverse local economy and world-class infrastructure is projected to continue to attract a variety of corporations to its urban core, as forecasted by global real estate company Colliers International. Tourism will also continue to drive people to the city – a record 54.1 million people visited the city in 2016, bolstered by vacationers and business travelers, the city reported.
