The new residential tower being built at 220 W Illinois has a new name: Jones Chicago. The 25 story apartment tower has been in the works for nearly seven years, but will begin preleasing next month, and will officially open at some point in the autumn. Developed by Gerding Edlen and Fred Latsko of Structured Management, the new Hartshorne Plunkard designed tower will include 188 luxury apartments and 1,500 square feet of ground level retail space. The LEED Gold building will also feature a rooftop bar and lounge and a large outdoor terrace on the sixth floor that will include a pool, sun deck, fire pit and covered dog run. Floor plans for studio, one and two bedroom units can be viewed on the tower's new website. If you're looking to keep up with the Joneses in River North, well, the Jones Chicago would be an obvious choice.
