J. Crew’s building permit has been approved by the City of Chicago this past week, and construction will start shorty at 3423 N. Southport. As previously reported, J. Crew will take about 6,000 square feet on the ground level with additional unannounced retail above. The building should be completed by the end of 2015, although it should be mentioned that the Gap across the street took about a year to complete, and is about the same size.
