In The Office: Intersport, Chicago

Intersport’s new 30,000-square-foot headquarters looks out from 22 floors above the Chicago River, but it also provides a view of the company’s collaborative culture.

The space, home base for 150 employees, includes nine video editing rooms, six conference rooms, four collaboration zones, a 24/7 studio, a cafeteria, an esports lounge, and a full tavern setup.

A desire to expand content production capabilities, plus investments in growing esports and culinary businesses, prompted the need for more space.

“Moving to a new office is about more than just a new location for us,” said Chief Marketing Officer Brian Graybill. “It is an important investment in our people.”
