After several years in the making, JonesChicago, the 25 story apartment building at 220 W Illinois Street is now finally open. Originally approved in 2007, the plan stalled out for several years but gained new life in 2012. Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, the building delivers 188 units to the neighborhood, including a mix of studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units. In addition to its residential mix, the building includes about 1,500 square feet of ground level retail space. Similar to other new apartment buildings in the greater downtown area, Jones packs a long list of amenities including a sixth floor outdoor space with a pool, fire pit, and cabanas. In keeping up with the Joneses, the building also sports the usual fitness center and dog run but also has a rooftop bar and lounge. Rents start around $1,825 for a studio and go up to over $3,000 for a two bedroom unit.
