Why join Platform?

Its the environment…

…with the right conditions

We offer a quiet, distraction-free workplace where like-minded individuals surround you.

Who works at Platform?

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.

More Questions

Is the space available 24/7?

Yes. Both locations have secure entry and all private offices have a lockable door.

Yes. Both our locations are surrounded by food options, all within walking distance. Ask us for recommendations!

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.

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.

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.

We offer both month-to-month and long-term. Preference will be given to those who can commit to a longer lease.

All of our offices include a desk, task chair, and a hardwired (ethernet) port. Many offices include a whiteboard as well. 

VoIP options are available, inquire for current rates.

Our Ravenswood location is relatively infrequently available for office use. Our Wicker Park location tends to have more regular openings, so check back often or join our waitlist.

Our Ravenswood location has 10 offices, while our Wicker Park location has 16.

Yes! Each of our offices include 6 hours of access for the conference room per month. Anything after that can be purchased for 1/2 off our current price.

Nope. If you’re having a guest or seeing a client, they can come visit you and will not have to pay for a day pass.

We do allow small dogs with manager approval for office members only. We also allow service animals for any guest or member.

You can email or call us, and we’d be happy to help.

Platform Co-working is kind of hidden gem. I was looking all over town at different co-working locations. I wanted a location that was well connected, modern, and a place with a friendly atmosphere, most importantly without breaking the bank! While many of the other co-working spaces (Industrious/WeWork/Etc) meet most of the criteria, none of them had rates that were reasonable/affordable. Platform is super down to earth, the community manager at the WP location, Lane, is the most friendly guy you've ever met, and the community is 2nd to none. Check it out, you won't regret it.

I came to Chicago as a digital nomad and Platform hooked it up. The leasing agent, Jeff, is very attentive to his phone and can give you personalized pin code for front door. They have extra monitors, keyboards and mice available on first-come first-served basis. The space is well thought out and properly labeled. I am usually quite productive here. With 2 reasonably priced locations (Wicker & Ravenswood), Platform coworking was a no-brainer for me.

I moved to Wicker Park a little over two years ago and switched my office from the Ravenswood location to Wicker Park. It couldn’t be more convenient. In addition to a great work environment I’ve made lots of new friends and thoroughly enjoy having this as my office away from home. I highly recommend it.

Best coworking space in Chicago - hands down! I love the professional environment and reasonable pricing. I’ve used other shared space arrangements in the city but none of them compares to Platform. Because I work remote, its important for me to have a quiet spot where I can think and accomplish tasks. Platform does this for me while not breaking the bank. I highly recommend.

Nice to meet you!
