Frequently Asked Questions
Why join Platform?
Whether it’s working for yourself, or remotely, it’s great to be independent. But the “lone wolf” syndrome that comes with it—eh, not so much. Our goal is to create an environment that allows you to focus on what’s important: getting your work done.
The right conditions
We offer a quiet, distraction free workplace where you are surrounded by like-minded individuals.
Who works at Plaform?
Writers, programmers, salespeople, designers, engineers, consultants—we’ve had members of every background imaginable. The common thread among members is that they are typically established professionals in their respective field.
Is the space available 24/7?
Yes. Both locations have secure entry and all private offices have a lockable door.
I talk on the phone. A lot. Is this a problem?
Not at all. We do ask that screaming be kept to a minimum. Conversations that require discretion can always be taken in the privacy of your office or in a phone booth.
Do you have landlines, or offer it as an option?
Yes. It is a $60 set up fee (phone included), and $39/month for unlimited calls.
What’s the parking situation like?
In Ravenswood, street parking is free after 10am. Otherwise, request and fill out a free permit or get an annual pass for $30 if you expect to regularly come in before 10am. Our Wicker Park location has paid street parking in front. Contact us for an alternative parking solution.
Are you accessible by public transit?
Yes for both locations! Ravenswood: Steps from the Montrose brown line el, and a 7 minute walk to the Ravenswood Metra station. Wicker Park: Steps from the Division blue line el.
Are you near any coffee shops or restaurants?
Yes. Both our locations are surrounded by food options, all within walking distance. Ask us for recommendations!
