Wight & Co. to Lead Design of Former AT&T Headquarters Redevelopment in Suburban Chicago

The development will be known as Bell Works Chicagoland.

HOFFMAN ESTATES, ILL. — Somerset Development has selected Wight & Co. to provide design services for Bell Works Chicagoland, a redevelopment project transforming the former 1.6 million-square-foot AT&T corporate campus in Hoffman Estates into a mixed-use complex. Plans call for office, coworking, retail and community space. Wight & Co. will serve as the project’s master architect, redesigning its shell and core, public spaces and individual tenant spaces. Wight plans to transform the 67,000-square-foot solarium that served as the AT&T food service area into an event center. Other plans include an 80,000-square-foot conference center and a 29,000-square-foot fitness center. Somerset refers to the project as a “metroburb” and has completed one such project in Monmouth, N.J. The AT&T headquarters, built as the Ameritech Center in 1990, was originally designed by Wight & Co. principal Dirk Lohan.
