600 West Messenger Center
600 West Chicago, Main Lobby
Office of the Building: 312-923-9200
Hours of Operation:
Monday - Friday | 8:30AM to 6:00PM
The Messenger Center is responsible for facilitating the timely exchange of envelopes and packages between the tenants and external messenger companies as well as the daily delivery of United States Postal Service mail. The employees handle envelopes and small packages up to 20 lbs. Heavier items must be delivered through the dock.
If your office is expecting an extremely urgent package, or if you need to communicate special handling instructions, please call the Messenger Center to notify its staff. This will facilitate a prompt and accurate delivery.
If an internal messenger is unable to deliver an envelope or package because the tenant’s office is closed, the item will be returned to the Messenger Center. The Messenger Center will call the tenant and leave a message of the attempted delivery. The item will be redelivered promptly the following business morning.
Before/After Hours & Weekend Deliveries
For messenger deliveries that occur outside of Messenger Center hours, the outside messenger will go to the security officer in the lobby who will then call the tenant. If the tenant is in, the tenant will go to the lobby and retrieve the package from the messenger. If the tenant is not in, the guard will request the messenger to redeliver the package the following business day.
For envelopes and small packages leaving your office via local messenger:
Call your messenger company of choice and place your order as usual.
After you place the order, call the Messenger Center to advise them to pick up your envelope or package.
