As younger tech workers flock to live and work downtown, having a cool and well-designed office space is important for attracting and keeping the best talent. The city's fleet of startups, creative agencies, and tech firms are all in a silent arms race for coolest office. Crain's Chicago Business has just taken a look at the contenders and named Chicago's Coolest Offices. Ad agency FCB's new Hancock Center office took first place, with LinkedIn's West Loop space taking a close second. One's got a staff of baristas, the other's got a ping-pong room and a yoga studio. There are 12 runners-up, as well. A lot of office managers are going to be grumpy this morning because their office didn't make the cut.
