Walking downtown Evanston: Joe and Andy on Sherman Avenue

After short looks at Grand Bend at Green Bay, the Evanston Farmers’ Market, and the shops and restaurants near Church Street and Maple Avenue, Joe Zekas and Andy Kiener walked east to Sherman Avenue for a look at more dining, nightlife and shopping options, and then on to Fountain Square.

Andy is marketing several new-construction condos at Grand Bend, located at 1228 Emerson St. The development this month was approved for FHA-backed loans, meaning buyers can get a condo at Grand Bend with a 3.5-percent down payment and a low-interest mortgage.
