601W Companies’ revitalization of the Old Chicago Main Post Office

Olshan advised 601W Companies on the transaction

The Old Chicago Main Post Office is a capacious Art Deco-style building which has sat vacant since 1997.

This move is part of the growing trend of transforming old post office facilities around the country into modern office space. These old postal facilities are an excellent opportunity for companies seeking a central location with ample space. Amenities for the transformed Chicago building, which spans about three city blocks, will include a “Gatsby-esque” lounge, as well as a roomy gym and a university-style library.

The 601W Companies provides real estate services. The Company acquires, develops, and manages a variety of commercial real estate properties. The 601W Companies operates throughout the United States.

Olshan Tax & Personal Planning partner Warren Gleicher (Picture) and counsel Shirlee Gordon represented 601W in this matter.
