BOMA/Chicago: The Voice of Chicago's Office Building Industry Since 1902

Welcome to the Building Owners and Managers Association of Chicago (BOMA/Chicago).

BOMA/Chicago is a trade association that has represented the interests of the Chicago office building industry since 1902. Membership includes 239 commercial office, institutional and public buildings and 169 companies that provide commercial building services to support operational excellence. BOMA/Chicago members constitute approximately 80 percent of all rentable office space and more than 98 percent of rentable space in Class A buildings downtown.

BOMA/Chicago has played a vital role in advocating on behalf of our members for over a century and continues to be a leader in drafting new building codes, advancing fire and life safety measures, negotiating mutually beneficial labor agreements and enhancing energy efficiency and sustainability practices.

We provide valuable resources that help our members advance Chicago's commercial real estate industry each and every day through continuing education and strategic partnerships that equip our members with the tools and information necessary to confront the challenges and opportunities of our ever-changing industry.

Our members also play a vital role in ensuring the economic viability of downtown Chicago. Member buildings support over 34,000 jobs, house more than 412,000 tenant employees and over 12,000 local, national and international companies. By protecting the interests of the owners and managers of these buildings, BOMA/Chicago also supports the businesses that are housed in them--businesses that require quality office space and quality service. BOMA/Chicago buildings support local schools and public services through more than $1 billion in annual property taxes.

We encourage you to explore our site to learn about BOMA/Chicago's many advocacy, education and networking programs, as well as membership benefits. We're proud to say that BOMA/Chicago is the oldest BOMA local association in the world. With our dedicated members and commitment to advancing the position of our industry, we'll continue to be the voice of Chicago's office building community for many years to come.
