Ulta Beauty adds new Chicago office
Ulta Beauty plans to open an amenity filled satellite office at desirable downtown Chicago location to complement its existing headquarters facility in a remote suburb.
Ulta Beauty CEO Mary Dillon and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced the opening of the new 23,000-sq.-ft. office in a 22-story building located at 120 South Riverside Plaza on the west bank of the Chicago River. The space will feature 100 work stations and give all of the company's employees flexibility and access to Chicago's public transportation, a gym and tenant lounge. It is scheduled to open later this summer.
"A Chicago location offers our existing employees more flexibility and the ability to collaborate with business partners in new ways, and it will also help us continue to attract the top talent we need to fuel our growth," Dillon said. "Additionally, our new satellite office solidifies our position as members of the Chicagoland community and reflects our continued commitment to this world-class city."
Ulta Beauty’s headquarters, home to more than 750 employees, 125 of which joined the company last year, is located in Bolingbrook. The suburban town is about a one hour drive southwest of downtown Chicago assuming light traffic. Lest those employees be jealous of the downtown location, Ulta said it plans to invest in renovation at its headquarters to create bright and open spaces consistent with the company’s brand identity which encourages shoppers to explore “the fun side of beauty.”
