Jones Chicago Apartments For Rent - 220 W. Illinois

When it comes to news about luxury rentals in Chicago, these days, there always seems to be something breaking. Yesterday, reports surfaced that Jones Chicago, a stunning new luxury apartment tower in River North, will finally open later this fall—and when we say “finally,” we really do mean it, as this exciting new River North rental development has been in the works for almost seven LONG years.
