Construction Update
JeffJack Building in the West Loop

601 West Jackson under construction

A long time reader, and new tipster, sent in these great pictures of 601 West Jackson under construction in the West Loop.

When we drove by a few weeks ago, nothing could be seen from the street because of the construction barriers. But since then the building has grown, and our tipster was able to provide an elevated view for us just before the concrete for the fourth floor.

When complete, 601 West Jackson will offer 198 apartments in a 15-story building. Groundbreaking for the building designed by Thomas Roszak Architecture happened this past January. Delivery is expected by next spring.
