You might have heard that the Lucien Lagrange-designed X/O Condominiums are “the sexiest in the South Loop.” Apparently the National Association of Home Builders agrees, because it handed the development a Gold Award for design excellence at last week’s “Nationals” awards ceremony in Orlando.

Kargil Development LLC and Riha Design Group also nabbed awards for Best Interior Merchandising of a model priced between $400,000 and $650,000 and Best Digital Marketing Tool for a 3-D fly-by of the X/O’s twin towers and the surrounding South Loop neighborhood.

X/O’s no stranger to these types of honors – the development won a Gold Key for interior design from the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago. We even declared the project Chicago’s best new high-rise in the May 2007 issue of New Homes Magazine, so you know it’s gotta be good.

Approximately 200 of the 486 residences at 1712 S Prairie Ave have been sold, according to Frankel & Giles Real Estate. Units in X/O’s 46-story north tower and 34-story south tower range in price from the $300s to more than $2 million.

Deliveries will begin in spring 2010.
