Are values coming back at the Chatham Club?

Chatham has long been one of the South Side’s proudest, most attractive communities. At the beginning of the year The New York Times characterized it as battered but vibrant.

The Chatham Club, a development of new single family homes, was built in the late 90s on the former site of the A.J. Canfield Company, which achieved a brief spurt of fame for its Diet Chocolate Fudge soda. The development is in the West Chesterfield sub-neighborhood, at the southwest edge of Chatham.

A 5-bedroom, 4-bath home in the Chatham Club at 8946 S Indiana Ave was recently listed for $299,900. That’s toward the high end of values in the development, where foreclosures have taken a toll and some homes have sold below $100K.

Irrelevant trivia: A.J. Canfield Company was a client of the law firm I was with in the late 70s. I worked on the company’s acquisition of regional bottling rights to Canada Dry mixers, and first visited the Chatham Club site when it was a large and active manufacturing plant.
