Essex Realty's Brian Mond has arranged the sale of 6720 S. Jeffery Blvd. in Chicago neighborhood for the second time

Historic Elevator Building Comes to Market Near Jackson Park

Essex Realty Group has listed 6720 S. Jeffery Blvd., an 81-unit apartment building located in Jackson Park Highlands. The property is listed for $6,000,000 by Essex director Brian Mond.

Located steps away from the 550-acre Jackson Park and a few blocks from the Bryn Mawr Metra Station, 6720 S. Jeffery Blvd. is an historic elevator building comprised of 81 apartment units. Amenities include a fitness center, business center, and laundry facility. 

“Jackson Park is a beautiful space with a rich history,” said Mond. “As one of Chicago’s largest parks, it offers tenants a number of amenities including playing fields, yacht clubs, beaches, golf courses, museums, and plenty of green space. 

“Looking forward, it will continue to remain a historically and culturally rich place as it is also the site of the future Barack Obama Presidential Center and Library,” he continued.
