Bucktown and beyond from Urban Sandbox

Urban Sandbox, 1615 N Wolcott Ave, Chicago

You don’t have to climb too high to get a good view of your surroundings in Bucktown and Wicker Park. Here’s what I could see from the deck atop the four-story Urban Sandbox, located at 1615 N Wolcott Ave. Only the building’s two fourth-floor condos get rooftop access. Of those, only one, unit 402, is still for sale. The three-bedroom / 2.5-bath unit is listed at $1.39 million.

  • Sounds like quite a price for a condo in Wicker Park/Bucktown

  • I didn’t get the specs on the unit before posting up these pictures, but since the topic has come up (sorta), here’s the breakdown of floor space: Unit 402 has approximately 2,200 square feet of interior space and another 1,035 square feet of outdoor space.

    I talked to Karen Ranquist about the pricing as we walked around the building. She feels like the relative lack of three-bedrooms of this size around Bucktown and the architectural style of the project justify the price point.

  • The MLS shows the other penthouse unit in the building under contract with an asking price of $1,195,800. So, over $1M for one of these remaining nicely located luxuries does not seem too aggressive.

    On a related note, a 3200 sq/ft penthouse at 1717 N Damen (just a couple blocks west of Urban Sandbox in Bucktown) closed for $1,250,000 in January of this year.
