By chance, does anyone work at the John Hancock?  I'm thinking of working there and contacted the property manager about bike parking.  She said they have an indoor, locked room and have never had theft out of there.  I'm just wondering what other people's experiences are with it. Is it as secure as she states?  How full does the room get?  Is it easy to get to the elevators from there?

Easy and secure bike parking is a big deciding factor in whether or not I do this. Thanks for any help.

My wife works on the residential side there. I'll ask her what she knows on the subject.

I have worked in the Hancock building for a couple of years and haven't ever been able to figure out where the bike room is or how to get access to it.  When I asked the office manager of my office they said I'd need a key (in addition to my key card) and made it seem like it would be a big hassle.  I park my bike under the overhang of Water Tower Place across the street, next to the security guard booth for the underground parking.  It's protected from rain and I've never had any trouble w/anything going missing off the bike.  Granted my bike at this point has the anti-theft cloaking device of looking kind of crappy.  If you feel nervous about parking your bike outside, I hope someone can offer better insight into the bike room.  

 

Good luck!

I work at Water Tower and also lock up under the overhang next to the security booth. It's a nice spot.

Funny, because the property manager made it sound like no big deal, just that I would need to get a key.  She mentioned the bike room was located by the dock.

Thank you to everyone.

My wife says there are two bike racks close to the parking helix (big circular drive that cars go up for Hancock parking) that are outside.

Since the Hancock has both a Commercial and a Residential side that's all she knows about the available bike parking for the commercial side.

 

Thanks!
