My attempts at visiting 15 South Racine, the contemporary eight-unit condo development at 15 S Racine Ave in the West Loop, have been unsuccessful so far, but thanks to Craigslist and the MLS, it’s still possible to have a look inside and find out what’s still for sale from the comfort of my desk.
A handful of Craigslist ads have been posted by Quest Realty agents Jason Vondrachek and Scott Sasse for 15 South Racine that all say, “Only 3 Left!” The three condos retrieved by an MLS search are all three-bedroom / two-baths with 1,800 square feet of floor space, and they’re priced from the $570s to the $640s.
According to the Craigslist ads, garage parking spaces are priced at $30,000, and the homes can be delivered within 30 days.
At the bottom of some of the ads, a little teaser can be found: “If these units pique your interest, Summer 2009 will deliver even bigger units similar to these in West Loop.”
Summer 2009 is upon us, and I don’t know of any other new-construction developments that are under construction in the West Loop, but a new placeholder has been added to the Quest Realty Web site for 1020 West Madison, so we’ll keep an eye on that site in the coming months.
