Coming to the West Loop this fall: a sprawling rock-climbing community center from Brooklyn Boulders. The center's third outpost (and first in the Midwest) will offer a whopping 23,000 square feet of climbing terrain.

There will also be an Active Collaborative Workspace that serves as a communal office-slash-exercise space. It's outfitted with a pull-up bar, desks with yoga-ball seats, and a rule that all workers must do five sit-ups or pull-ups every 30 minutes. More perks: a cafe and retail area stocked with climbing gear, artwork from local artists dotting the walls, and, a hybrid fitness studio with spaces for weight training, cardio workouts, and yoga.
