It’s always sunny at River North’s “blue building”

River North panorama

“When you walk out of the building, it’s sunny. In 50-story neighborhoods you walk out of a building and it’s like you’re in a canyon. You get a little sliver of sun, maybe for a while during the day. Here it’s sunny all the time.” That’s @properties’ Greg Eldridge talking about the location of Superior ...

A cautiously bullish view on River North real estate

Superior 110, Chicago

Earlier today I joined our sales manager on a visit to Superior 110, a luxury high-rise in River North that’s one of our clients.

A home buyer talks about Superior 110 and River North
