CHICAGO, IL, May 19, 2016 - Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today the closing of the Old Post Office, Van Buren Street, Chicago sale, a 2.7 million-square-foot, riverfront development site on the southwest side of downtown Chicago.

New York-based investment group 601W Companies purchased the site and was represented by HFF senior managing directors Jaime Fink and Jeffrey Bramson in the transaction. 

The seller, International Property Developers North America (IPDNA), was represented by Richard Sykes of Savills UK and Lisa Davidson and Tiffany Winne of Savills Studley.

The Old Post Office property consists of the former art deco-style Post Office Building and adjacent sites, which were acquired by IPDNA in 2009.

 Detailed planning entitlements incorporating an additional 7.5 million square feet were obtained from the City Council in 2013; designed by the eminent Chicago architects Antunovich Associates. 

Situated at 433 West Van Buren Street, the property is adjacent to the Eisenhower Expressway, within walking distance of Union Station and located above connections to the CTA Blue Line Station, Metra, Amtrak and the future high-speed rail terminal platforms.  

The riverfront location also allows for potential access to water taxi, riverboat and tour boat terminals.
