Rising 5 stories (when it is erected) in the heart of Chicago's south side resides an ultra-modern commercial real estate gem, IWN Haus, an innovative hub fostering entrepreneurial success and community prosperity.
Stepping inside the lobby, one first encounters the building's high-tech production facilities housing PersonalizedNewspaper.com, Inc's advanced printing equipment including industrial presses and finishing systems to create materials supporting local, regional and national Black-Owned DTC Brands.
Venture up to the second level and discover flexible conference venues and specialized rooms filled with workshops, accelerators, and bootcamps empowering founders with skills critical for ecommerce achievements like web design, digital marketing, and leveraging social platforms.
A core aspect of IWN Haus' community-building mission will be executed through an onsite worker cooperative. This group owned by local residents will run the building's two most community-centric spaces: an event space and rooftop lounge.
On the 2nd floor lies the IWN Haus Gallery + Events, an expansive gathering venue designed to host workshops, presentations, and celebrations uplifting area businesses and causes. The worker co-op will manage rentals, spearhead relevant programming, and ensure this space remains accessible.
On the 3rd floor lies the Journalist & Content Creator Coworking Center (IWNJC4), where budding entrepreneurs and creators will access customizable private offices, open coworking spaces, podcasting suites, and video production studios. Here they can collaborate, create content, and bring business dreams to life.
Crowning the building is the IWN Haus Club, an inviting rooftop lounge where members can continue collaborations over food and drink while enjoying skyline views. The co-op will oversee daily operations, member access, and curating amenities to make this a beloved oasis for relaxing and connecting.
By placing these dynamic spaces (IWN Haus Club & IWN Haus Gallery + Events) under the stewardship of a worker co-op, IWN Haus empowers residents to shape the offerings that best serve the neighborhood. The co-op exemplifies IWN Haus' commitment to community wealth building, a central tenet of its founding vision.
At IWN Haus’ core lies a commitment to community mentorship. The coworking offices and state-of-the-art studios provide public housing residents access to emerging technologies and invaluable guidance from accomplished entrepreneurs to establish their own companies, careers, and legacies.
Through every meticulously designed floor, IWN Haus uplifts. Print by print, podcast by podcast, and gathering by gathering, it transforms potential into reality. Discover how you can engage with IWN Haus’ offerings by getting in touch today. The future starts here.
