"Minimal, but comfortable, convenient and serviceable"

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

All in all, the space seems ideal for small teams, rather than individuals. It's not the totally glamorous West Loop Loft with high, open ceilings and glass windows, but it does provide the resources, like desks and meeting rooms, to comfortably house a small team.They have private IT server management to ensure reliable connectivity and little perks like free coffee and a great massage chair. Once construction is done, some minor clutter will be reduced. It's in a cool, up and coming location. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's more on the minimal end of modern co-working spaces, but it gets the job done.

What do you like best?

Forum West Loop was conveniently located adjacent to the Morgan Green Line CTA stop, though I did walk about 15 minutes from the Blue Line since the weather was wonderful. Upon arrival, Hunter was welcoming, gave me a bit of the space's history, and a wonderful tour. He also gave another tour while I was there, so it seemed to be common. He also gave me suggestions on food around the neighborhood (which was quite abundant).

My internet connection was solid and didn't pose any problems throughout the day. Most co-working spaces I've visited had more open areas and glass doors and a modern feel, but Forum did feel like more of a traditional office. One company occupied about one-third of the existing space, which was separated from the remaining areas. The open spots consisted of a few singular desks and about ten offices ranging from one to five-person areas. There was also a full kitchen, coffee machine, and adjacent seating area.

Everyone working there was friendly and kept to themselves for the most part. People looking for a handful of desks, some meeting rooms, and a convenient location would not be disappointed. It's not ideal for individuals unless you're willing to rent one whole personal office which range in price between about $1,300 and $2,200 per month. The staff there did seem open to help accommodate larger teams and provide the necessary resources.

What do you dislike?

The space itself was in a bit of flux, as the space had recently expanded upstairs and some construction was going on. Still, once I settled into my relatively isolated and private working space noise was not an issue.
