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 really. We encourage members to take short calls at their desk, but for longer calls like Zoom presentations we suggest booking the conference room or hopping into one of the phone booths throughout the space.
Do you have landlines, or offer it as an option?
VoIP options are available, inquire for current rates.
What’s the parking situation like?
In Ravenswood, parking is permit restricted. Permits can be obtained for $33 for the calendar year, or you can purchase day passes. Parking in our Wicker Park location is either street or SpotHero. Monthly off street options are also available.
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?
