Most of the condos at 340 on the Park closed for the first time in 2007. The tower, located at 340 E Randolph St in Lakeshore East (across the street from the Daley Bicentennial Plaza), is well into its first resale cycle, and the numbers are looking good for sellers: in a time when losses are almost a given, most condos are breaking even or selling for slightly more than before. Maybe there’s some truth to that “location” thing after all.
