CA23, The Brixton Group's new 48-unit condo development at 23 N Aberdeen St in West Loop, Chicago

About a month ago, The Brixton Group announced that buyers who signed contracts at CA23 in October would receive a $30,000 allowance that could be used to hire Matt Lorenz, the recent winner of Bravo’s Top Design, to help design their new homes. Now, principal Geoff Ruttenburg says The Brixton Group will be extending the offer, probably until January, and they’re also giving buyers the option to choose between spending the $30,000 on the Matt Lorenz design package or on a personal trainer.

You read that correctly: The $30,000 can be spent entirely on a personal trainer. Ruttenberg says the deal will get you about two years of personal training, three or four days per week, with a trainer from nearby John Hall Studios. As for the design deal, Ruttenberg says buyers will receive the money from The Brixton Group, and they’ll be able to allocate it as they please. So, for example, a buyer could spend just part of the money on consulting with Lorenz, and the rest on furnishings.

I stopped by 23 N Aberdeen St yesterday to check out the construction site, and it looks like the first phase is nearing completion. Most of the windows are in place, and we’re beginning to see some of the masonry on the southern portion of the building. Ruttenberg says a model will open in December, and he expects construction to wrap up and deliveries to begin in January.

Twelve two- to four-bedroom homes are still available in Phase I of CA23, and the price points have tightened up slightly to the $650s to $1.45 million.
