600 West Chicago is located along the Chicago River at the intersection of Larrabee Street and West Chicago Avenue in the vibrant River North neighborhood. The building was constructed in 1908, served as the Montgomery Ward & Co. catalog distribution center. It had since been listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places, and has been designated a Chicago Landmark Building. Taconic acquired 600 West Chicago in July 2000 and invested over $165 million to completely redevelop and reposition the property as a home for some of Chicago’s leading corporations. The redevelopment resulted in a 1.6 million-square-foot, first-class office campus with superior infrastructure improvements including increased power, significant fiber connectivity, back-up generators, high ceilings, and large floor plates.
