More good news for Chicago’s West Loop came via The Chicago Architecture Blog earlier this week with the announcement that a proposed 15-story, 198-unit apartment building at 601 W. Jackson has no objections from West Loop residents and surrounding neighbors. As mentioned in the blog, it isn’t uncommon for area locals to fuss about a potential new development coming to the neighborhood, as issues such as parking, congestion, blocked views, and diminishing park space often become worrisome to those living nearby. But in the case of 601 West Jackson however, everything planned seems to be well received by everyone involved with the project or residing near the site.
Currently, a surface parking lot sits at the corner of Jackson and Jefferson with possible development plans and rumors dating all the way back to last year. But according to CAB, the latest proposed project at 601 W. Jackson has already secured financing and a date to break ground has already been set for sometime in November. Retail and restaurant space will be available on the ground floor while the residential portion will include three levels of parking, an expansive courtyard space with a dog run on the fourth floor, a rooftop pool and sundeck, and 24-hour door service. For more information on 601 W. Jackson, be sure to keep checking in with the Chicago Architecture Blog regularly, and give Ted Guarnero a call (312) 566-8141 as well to find out more about Chicago’s red hot West Loop real estate market.
