Sales update: 1 unit left at Substation North Lofts

Substation North Lofts

We really wish we could include Substation North Lofts in New Homes Magazine‘s forthcoming lofts feature in February – but we can’t, because there’s just a single unit left.

According to Santiago Moreno, of @properties, a two-bedroom duplex is still available in the Edgewater development, which started life as a ComEd utility substation before undergoing a residential conversion by developer Sufa & Shemesh LLC. Leftover accoutrements from the site’s industrial past (including control panels and metal ladders) now adorn the units and common areas.

The remaining unit (floor plan 7 on the project’s Web page) is priced at $339,900.

About a year ago, Yo wondered whether buyers would bite at Substation North, given its price tag and location. Now, with just one unit left unsold, we’ve got our answer.

    Wow, the place I live should make 4 condos out of their old boiler room and sell them for $350,000 each!
