Pizza, Red Bull, and last-minute purchases at 565 Quincy's late-night "tax dashes"

565 Quincy, 565 W Quincy St, Chicago

Sometimes there are rewards for procrastinating…rewards like pizza and energy drinks. I’m not talking finals week — I’m talking tax credits.

Belgravia Group will keep the 565 Quincy sales center open late on April 29 and 30 for anyone who wants to buy a home in the hours, minutes, or seconds leading up to the $8,000 first-time buyer tax credit deadline. Yes, there’ll be plenty of pizza and Red Bull available at these “Midnight Tax Dashes” to ensure that you stay awake and well fed as you make that race against the clock.

The 241-unit development at 565 W Quincy St has seen more than 85 sales in the three months since Belgravia lowered prices by 15 to 30 percent. One- and two-bedroom homes in 565’s seven-story adapted loft building are priced from the $220s to $360s, while one- and two-bedroom condos in its 11 stories of new construction now range from the $150s to $350s.

The homes qualify for FHA-backed mortgages, and BG Mortgage (an affiliate of Wells Fargo), is offering interest rates below market level on select units, according to Belgravia.
