Vivid Seats has a new headquarters in Chicago! The 40,600-square-foot corporate HQ for the leading online ticket marketplace was designed by Clayco’s partner company Lamar Johnson Collaborative. The facility enables a hybrid work model with collaborative workspaces and an area for live events, a gym, coffee shop, bar, rooftop, and a food court in the historic Marshall Field Building downtown. All excellent reasons for people to get back to the office!

Like how our work in design and building connects people through the development of spaces, Vivid Seats operates on the belief that “Life Happens Live” and unites people through one of the widest selections of events and tickets in North America. This facility helped the company construct a new identity, celebrate the brand, and prove to its team that there is no replacement for the creativity, cooperation, and innovation that comes from working together in person.

To cater to the company, LJC evaluated each department and how best to meet its needs. LJC worked to create a balance of amenities and comfort with open and closed workspaces and communal areas. This headquarters is a great example of how remote work is not the new normal and that having teams return to the workplace is long overdue. 

You cannot substitute the energy of an office full of talented and dedicated people working toward common goals – and I look forward to seeing how Vivid Seats uses this transformative space to reach its objectives.
