University Commons, formerly Chicago’s South Water Market, is a historical landmark made up of 6 buildings and 917 units. These former produce warehouses, built in the Daniel Burnham architecture style back in 1920, were converted into condos between 2004 and 2007. With 38 different floorplans, there are a variety of options with something for every buyer: 1-bedroom plus den, 2-bedroom/2-bath and 3-bedroom/2-bath duplex and corner units and fourth-floor penthouse units— the fourth floor was added to each building to accommodate these units and the amenities (gyms and recreation rooms). University Commons has full-time, on- site management, an outdoor pool and 30-seat movie theater. Come see us at this historic, full-amenity complex!

Jason Webb and Angie Pelayo both live in the complex—they both own their condos in Building 3—and have over 22 years of experience between them. Living here has its perks! Jason and Angie know just about everything there is to know about each of the buildings and can enthusiastically communicate the quality of life, as they live it each and every day. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, you’ll want to have a conversation with them before you make any moves in this complex!

About Me

Jason Webb

Jason Webb 312.505.9322

Jason has extensive experience as a licensed real estate broker, and credits his ability to educate and fully explain all aspects of the process to his clients as one of his greatest strengths. Although he has worked all over the city, he specializes in the West Loop, South Loop, Pilsen, and UIC area including University Village and University Commons, where he lives. While he represents a variety of clients, he especially enjoys working with first-time buyers and sellers.

When not spending time with his clients, Jason is very involved in the 6-building University Commons complex he has resided in for the past 14 years. He served on his building’s Condo Board for those 14 years and regularly sat on the Master Board, as well. He has participated in a number of community volunteer efforts, including the clean-up of local viaducts. He also helps manage the complex’s social media page and participates in just about every social event, including the monthly book club. He takes all of his experience with him to every transaction, but still admits to learning at least one new thing at every closing!

Jason is also an investor, with his business partners, in multi-family buildings on Chicago's near west side.
