Google Chicago's new office is the centerpiece of the 1K Fulton building, where it occupies six floors of a 92-year-old former ice warehouse that is now home to tech companies. Across the street, construction crews worked on the site that will house a trendy Ace Hotel. Nearby, startups including restaurant ticketing company Tock, started by former Google engineer Brian Fitzpatrick, help give the Fulton Market Innovation District its name.
