The Metroburb

The Ameritech Center in Hoffman Estates, originally built as the former AT&T research facility, is being transformed into Bell Works Chicagoland— a destination for business and culture unlike any other in the region. By combining world-class workspaces, curated dining options, one-of-a-kind retail experiences and much more, it will become everything a great downtown can offer, all under one roof. We call it: The Metroburb.
