Clark is constructing a 15-story building with 12 floors of residential space and two levels of parking over the lobby level. The 250,000 square-foot structure will feature 190 luxury apartment units, 5,000 square feet of retail space, fitness and conference rooms as well as a pool, theater, bar, cyber café, and a social room.

Residential units start on the fourth story, seated atop the above-ground garage. That floor also houses an 8,000 square-foot eco-garden landscaped with prairie grasses and perennials that includes a dog walk and a lawn area.

The JeffJack building is scheduled to achieve LEED® Silver certification upon completion. The building also will feature a green roof terrace.

Construction will begin in December and substantial completion is scheduled for March 2015.
