Quote of the day: What's the holdup?

From Appraisal Research Counselors‘ 4Q 2009 Downtown Chicago Residential Benchmark Report: Nearly every building which has been recently constructed has already started condo sale closings, thus limiting the opportunities for changing exit strategies. All of the buildings which were completed in 2009 or are being completed in 2010 have started closings except Mondial, Lexington Park-tower ...

Trio's Craigslist blitz: I get the point, guys

Let’s say, hypothetically, you have a hundred-unit tower near downtown that’s ready to rock and roll — how do you find tenants?

Touring the sixth floor of Trio's tower

Two Sundays ago, Jameson agent Matt Ohlsen took me through some of the finished units on the sixth floor of Trio‘s tower at 670 W Wayman St. This was prior to a Crain’s story about the tower’s possible conversion to a rental building, so some of the pricing mentioned throughout the tour might already be ...

Revisiting two soon-to-be rentals

I don’t know it for a fact, but I’d guess that the new video above became outdated faster than any other I’ve ever uploaded. We got around to editing this footage from my weekend visit to Trio on Tuesday afternoon, mere hours before learning that the tower most likely will go rental. Actually, we’re going ...

Crain's: Trio, Mondial may switch to rental

“Do you think someone who has a contract for a $450,000 unit that they signed two years ago is going to close? They aren’t going to close, so why alienate the marketplace? We have to do the responsible thing.” – Citta Development principal Jack Berger, explaining why he canceled 50 contracts at Mondial, the completed ...
