Peace of mind can be hard to find in a big and bustling city. That’s why developer Steven Frytz of Anchor General Construction sees Cornelia Court‘s location west of Western Avenue in Avondale as a good thing.
Writer Andrew Peck interviewed Frytz about his quiet 63-unit townhouse project for a sponsored article in the September issue of New Homes.
“This is a quiet neighborhood,” he says. “I listen to the crickets at night. I don’t hear any buses, rowdy Cubs fans or anything like that.”
Frytz’s most recent project prior to Cornelia Court was a 24-unit condo development in Roscoe Village known as Addison Station. He then set his sights westward to Avondale, a neighborhood that he believes is evolving along with the housing market.
“In Chicago there is always a recycling of neighborhoods,” Frytz says. “We believe that this is becoming a family-oriented community just like Roscoe Village. We assumed that people who got out of the condo market – people who had a child or a growing family – would be looking for a townhome development with low density.”
In these three-story townhouses, residents won’t have to worry about noise traveling from above or below, because their only neighbors will be located next to them. Each townhouse includes a private entrance, a finished deck, an attached two-car garage and yard space. Of the 32 completed three-story townhouses at Cornelia Court, nine were still available as of August.
