McCaffery's vision to create a dynamic gathering place for apartment residents, shoppers and the South Loop community is rapidly taking shape with the recently completed new central park. The park and plaza areas feature a children's playground, a koi pond, casual seating with fire pits, a life-size chessboard, a grand fountain and numerous open spaces surrounded by lush landscape, providing a stunning meeting and entertainment center to rival any in Chicago.

Located on the first and second floors, The Shops at Roosevelt Collection will complete the Roosevelt Collection experience, enhancing the existing community established by The Lofts at Roosevelt Collection—342 award-winning Class-A apartments. Easily accessible by all forms of transportation, and containing a state-of-the-art three-floor underground parking garage, Roosevelt Collection is one of the most anticipated open-air lifestyle centers in Chicago.

McCaffery Interests strives to provide creative and socially responsible solutions to meet the lifestyle needs of tenants, residents and the community. Chicagoans are encouraged to explore the opportunities presented by Roosevelt Collection by visiting the center at 150 W Roosevelt Road.
