The two-bedroom / two-bath tango: five new downtown condos

Ready for a little floor plan porn this morning?

Here are five new two-bedroom / two-bath condos still for sale at some of downtown Chicago’s newer high-rises, complete with a breakdown of price per square foot, monthly assessments, and the biggest “selling points” mentioned in each of their listings (minus the laundry lists of everyday finishes, of course).

Overall, these five homes have from just over 1,100 square feet to just over 1,400 square feet. They all have the usual finishes — hardwood floors, granite countertops, etc. — and they all have balconies. They range from the $340s to the $430s, or about $284 to $338 per square foot, and have assessments of $390 to $584 per month.
