Home buyers in search of an authentic Chicago neighborhood offering an urban vibe with residential conveniences should consider the Fulton River District. Located northwest of the Loop and west of River North, the district dates back to the 1830s, when it was primarily an industrial neighborhood and warehouse and distribution district.
Today the Fulton River District is home to a variety of homes, including the Loft Condominiums at Trio. Residents benefit from walkable access to the Loop; proximity to the Ogilvie Transportation Center, I-90 and multiple CTA bus and ‘L’ lines; and popular restaurants and nightlife hangouts like Carnivale, Blackbird, Jefferson Tap and Emmit’s Irish Pub.
The residential boom of recent years has brought with it new commercial development, including a brand-new Jewel-Osco and specialty shops like Pet Stuff, Spa Space and Pinky Nail Salon, all located adjacent to Trio. Nearby are local parks and a thriving pet-friendly community.
The few remaining Loft Condominiums at Trio, 650 – 660 W Wayman St, are priced from $199,900 to $359,900, with parking included. Floor plans include one-, one-plus-den, and two-bedroom condos, with one or two baths and 653 to 1,259 square feet of living space.
The homes feature up to two balconies or a terrace, hardwood floors, 10.5 -foot ceiling heights, floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit laundry, and kitchens with custom cabinetry, glass tile backsplashes, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. Each home also includes SmartHome technology to remotely control lighting, televisions and sound systems.
