South Water Market is a designated landmark on the US National Register of Historic Places. Built in the mid 1920’s and highlighted with terra-cotta stone carvings and floral ornaments, the wholesale fresh produce market continuously serviced Chicago for 78 years. It was the city’s primary wholesale food market and virtually all fresh produce came into the Chicago from here.  In July 2003, the Chicago Planning Commission granted approval on the sale of the market to The Enterprise Companies of Chicago. They were the only developer whose intent was not to tear down the structures. Papageorge Haymes, a leading urban residential architecture firm led the renovation along with their consultant Wiss Janney Elstner, who meticulously designed a repair and cleaning specification to recondition the beautiful terra-cotta facades which, over time, had become dilapidated. The 6 buildings are named University Commons; The first was occupied in April 2005 and the last building in December 2007. Because of its listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004, the new residential tenants are eligible for the Property Tax Assessment Freeze Program, which is administered through the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.
