Catalpa Square is now Terra Place

Catalpa Square, 2409 W Catalpa Ave, Chicago

Even Old New York was once New Amsterdam. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. The development at 2409 W Catalpa, however, may be smelling even sweeter as its new listing brokerage Jameson boasts price reductions of up to $150K.

When Koenig and Strey listed this development as Catalpa Square, we reported that they were selling units without a model but with floor plans alone. Our last check-up here about 10 months ago showed five units still for sale.  Jameson, listing the same five units under the name Terra Place, appears very motivated to attract new attention to these north side residences. They include:

  • #303: A two bedroom / two-bath priced in the $220s
  • #305: A two-bedroom / two-bath priced in the $220s
  • #302: A two-bedroom / two-bath priced in the $310s
  • #306: A three-bedroom / two-bath priced in the $340s
  • #108: A three-bedroom / three-bath priced in the $390s

The development’s page on Jameson’s Web site is somewhat bare and features no images outside of an old rendering. The development, with new low pricing, includes your typical condo finishes plus a spot in the garage. Practically, you won’t be strolling distance from the notably strollable portion of Lincoln Square, but a longer walk, a short drive or bus ride would be worth it for the neighborhood amenities on Lincoln between Lawrence and Montrose.


  • This is well written and a good slice of the trade-offs you’ll get at this location. I think if the building is in good standing, construction is good and the developer/association turn-over has gone well (or will go well) these current prices are attractive. I live not too far from this development. I think the three bedrooms, three baths home should be attractive to a family looking for an affordable, quiet location close enough to enjoying city culture and amenity.
    In fact, go a little west and you Northeastern Illinois University and North Park University, not to mention good options for pre-school and grade schools in the North Park/Bud Long Woods neighbohods.
