This is old. It still hasn't come before the plan commission yet. At least I don't believe that it has.

Not really. I mean there's never any regular news on this one. By this time next week it'll be on page 2.

601 W. Monroe
601 W. Monroe, Chicago, Illinois

601 W. Monroe, a 37-story, 894,000 sq. ft. proposed office building located on the southwest corner of Monroe and Jefferson streets, is one of the last great office sites available in the West Loop.

This location provides unobstructed views and convenience. Just two blocks from the Union Station and the Ogilvie Transportation Center, 601 W. Monroe is walking distance to the train stations and minutes away from the expressways. This premiere site location is adjacent to the City of Chicago's newest park and a planned 6 story, 450 car parking garage. The 63,500 sq. ft. site allows for plenty of design flexibility, with the capacity to develop anywhere from 400,000 sq. ft. to 1,000,000 sq. ft.


For leasing information, please contact Tom Saletta with Fifield Companies at 312-424-6209 or [email protected].

There wont be. Its just another West Loop office proposal. But unlike most recent WLoop buildings, this one has height. Its also replacing more surface lots and I think a park is part of this development. It is one of the better West Loop proposals, that is for damn sure.

601 and 625 W Monroe

Looks like Fifield updated their website with new images of this project.

Wow, I forgot about this one... Predictions of this one actually going through?
(Believe me I would love to see it, it would help cover up the Presidential Towers from the west, as well as expand the Loop more west also)

Yea, I think this would be a great addition to the area and give some much needed height other then the PT. It will also be a nice look framing the Kennedy with some glassy height. I can't tell if that canopy between the two buildings is open air or will be an enclosure. I have a gut feeling that Fifield has the persistance to see this building through, just a feeling.

^ There was an article about 2 weeks ago that discussed Fifield buying the site in preparation for a 2-tower office complex

Fifield has closed on the parking lot and they say that they're willing to build the first tower (601 West Monroe) speculatively. If BP decides that they're interested, so much the better.

A May 2008 construction start is planned.

A new brush with history
March 4, 2009
DAVID ROEDER


SCRATCHING THE NICHE: Developer Steven Fifield's faith in the West Loop has paid off handsomely. Since 2000, he's put up four office buildings on Clinton or Jefferson streets. Despite the seized-up credit markets, Fifield said he's tantalizingly close to starting a fifth, 26 stories and 406,000 square feet at 601 W. Monroe, the southwest corner of Monroe and Jefferson. DeStefano & Partners designed the building.

Fifield said two insurance firms are willing to fund a $90 million construction loan if he can secure leases for at least 180,000 square feet. That means finding one or two anchor tenants looking for a new home around 2011 and Fifield can break ground this year.

I would like to see this happen. All of those parking lots over there need to go. AMA seems like a good fit, it was going to the West Loop anyway. I can't imagine them signing Baker Mckenzie, a big firm like that wouldn't want to be that far from the Loop.
