It’s been one year since Downtown Apartment Company opened its new River North Office. (Of course, working from home wasn’t how we expected to spend it.) The office was thoughtfully curated with unique features and plenty of individual spaces, and rings true to the DAC slogan, “Choose Wisely. Live Stylishly.”
Upon entering DAC’s two level River North office, you’ll step into a two seat lounge-style lobby area.
Up the steps to the right sits the crowned jewel of the office– the conference room. The long table with regal chairs and furniture, quartz and crystal coasters and accents, and last but not least, the faux living green wall, are just some of the attributes that make this room feel special. Even when the office lights are turned off at the end of the day, the illuminated Downtown Apartment Company logo shines from the glassy conference room.
As you move through the rest of the ground level, you’ll see an open layout of work space with sleek white desks. The high ceilings and towering cathedral style windows allow for abundant natural light in this area.
Our office is located in River North’s acclaimed gallery district. In keeping with that theme, our office is full of inspired artwork and artisan pieces. On your way down the stairs to the ground level you’ll notice a collection of artwork on the wall that spans both levels. Each piece of artwork correlates with a meaning and a playlist that ties together the fun shui of the office.
The lower level is complete with a spacious training room, an “instagram worthy” seating space, a large lounge area, and a kitchenette with four glass seating tables.
The crystal accents throughout the office were chosen for the properties they represent: Amethyst for the protection and prosperity it brings, agate for harmony and equilibrium, selenite for fluidity and honesty, rose quartz for agreement and resolution, and smoky quartz for vitality and balance.

The West Loop office market saw a huge increase in momentum in 2018 and is not showing signs of slowing up anytime soon. The West Loop has become an attractive area for tech companies, many of which appear to place an emphasis on employee work-life balance and healthy lifestyle. In turn, newer office building developments have started to include features and amenities geared toward the desires of these tech-culture companies. The amenities in many of these office buildings resemble the amenities you might see in residential buildings in the area.
320 N Sangamon is a 13 story office tower that recently broke ground in what was formally the AmeriGas Propane facility. The Fulton Market building will feature 268,000 square feet of office space, 7,800 square feet of ground level retail space, and plenty of additional amenity space. Office tenants will enjoy use of a fitness center with group fitness classes, a lounge space with curated services, a bike room, and an open-air communal penthouse with an outdoor terrace and fire pits. 320 N Sangamon has a 2021 expected completion date.
176 N Halsted (also known as 167 N Green Street) is a planned 15 story commercial development with 234, 600 square feet of office space with additional retail space. Amenities will include a state-of-the-art fitness center, multiple outdoor terraces, a drawing room, and a group fitness studio. Renderings also include a walkway between the development’s two buildings.
333 N Green Street is another creative Fulton Market office and retail space, being developed by Sterling Bay and designed by Gensler, in the site of what was formerly Coyne College. As far as amenities go in West Loop office space, 333 N Green takes the cake. Office tenants will have access to a skydeck overlooking the skyline, a lounge with grab-and-go food service, a bar, gaming area, a full service fitness center (that looks more like a health club), yoga studio, shuttle service to and from Ogilvie and Union stations, bike room, conference center, 24-hour door staff, on site retail, parking, and valet dry-cleaning.
