We’re thrilled to be opening the newest Assemble coworking location in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood in February. The new location is on 1720 West Division Street, close to the Division Blue line stop. The first floor of the building is the home of a new Foxtrot location as well.
Here are some reasons why we think Wicker Park will be a great place for you to work.
For those who want to ditch their home office, commuting downtown may not be too enticing. Fighting for a spot on the train or sitting in traffic during rush hour can take away from your productivity. Assemble’s new Wicker Park location is just steps from the Division blue line stop. While others are taking the train towards the city, you could be taking it the opposite direction to Assemble. The close proximity to downtown and other popular neighborhood makes it a great option for those who want convenience, but don’t need to be in the Loop.
For those living in Wicker Park, Bucktown and nearby neighborhoods, there have been very few options when it comes to flexible office space. Assemble’s new location offers a number of offices that can accommodate 1-10 employees. If you’re an entrepreneur or a part of a small business and you live in the neighborhood, you’ll find the perfect work environment at Assemble.
Assemble members get complimentary access to all of our locations. Book a free conference room in the West Loop with a client located there. Being an Assemble member gives you flexibility and convenience when you need it.
Wicker Park is home to many of Chicago’s favorite restaurants, bars and clubs. Grab lunch with coworkers at Smoke Daddy (across the street from Assemble) or catch a concert at Subterranean after work.

Here’s what they say about Assemble:
“OKW Architects (designer of Eataly) created this workspace. Assemble has co-working spaces in the West Loop and in the Gold Coast/Old Town, and a location in Wicker Park is scheduled to open in November. Membership provides access to all. The West Loop space is Assemble’s biggest, at 14,000 square feet and 50 offices. The dog-friendly loft has a cozy feeling, with brick columns and wooden tables. Bike storage, conference room access, coffee and snacks, 24-hour access and weekly networking events are included.”
Our Wicker Park location is scheduled to open in January!
DNAInfo recently published an article on Assemble’s newest location in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. The article includes some information on the 1720 W Division Street building, which was previously owned by sculpture Giovanni “John” Desiderio Bucci.
Assemble Co-Founder Phil Domenico is quoted saying, “Every year we are growing. When we asked our members where to go next, they said Wicker Park and Lincoln Park and we were fortunate to have found this building.”
We’re thrilled to announce Assemble’s new location in Chicago’s Wicker Park location. Our third Chicago shared office space is expected to open in January 2018.
Assemble is partnering with Jenel Management out of New York to create over 18,000 SF of shared office space on floors two and three of the building. The location will also include over 8,000 SF of restaurant/retail space on the ground floor.
Assemble was recently named one of the top 5 coworking spaces in Chicago. Their article says, “We did some research and identified the 5 most exciting coworking spaces in the city. If you’re in Chicago or hiring a remote employee, we recommend you check out these offices. They might be just what you’re looking for.”
They write about Assemble, “The month-to-month lease ensures that your office space can grow as quickly as your company does. There is also no long-term commitment. The free conference rooms are a nice perk too!”

We’re thrilled to welcome Kendra Sandsmark as the new community manager at our Chicago West Loop location. We thought it’d be a good idea to let Kendra tell everyone a little bit about herself through the blog. Check out her answers to a few questions below. Be sure to introduce yourself the next time you’re at the Chicago West Loop space!
I was looking for a career change since I was in luxury retail management for the last 13 years. I love supporting my team and helping them with their daily needs so they can succeed. I am fascinated by the shared office structure and love that this office has many unique and amazing companies. I am also fascinated by weekends. What are they? What do you do on weekends? I love the schedule!
I was raised in Baltimore, Maryland and came to Chicago many moons ago to attend The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I have been here ever since, and love this town!
I like to spend time catching up with friends, and entertaining at my new condo. I also love designing wedding invitations in my spare time.
My work background is in customer service, sales and support. Being in retail, the customer always comes first, and this means the Assemble member is my first priority. The Assemble family is my new team!
Wait, do I have to pick a favorite? My favorite two bars would be Fox Bar at Soho House, and Lost Lake. My favorite restaurant, is actually not in Chicago! It is called Sketch, and it is one of the most unique spots in London. I dream about this place!
