Chicago Graystone readies Briar by the Park

Sketch of Briar by the Park, 456 W Briar Pl, ChicagoJameson Real Estate recently added another Chicago Graystone project to its list of featured developments. Along with Halsted Row, The Catalina and The Chelsea, the company is now marketing Briar by the Park, a four-unit building at 456 W Briar Pl in Lakeview East.

Jameson’s project profile is light on details about the number and types of homes available, but it does say that Briar by the Park is an “extra w-i-d-e” 26-foot brick / limestone building on an “extra w-i-d-e” 33-foot lot. Thanks to the MLS and Chicago Graystone’s site, we can piece together a few more details about the units.

Three of Briar by the Park’s condos are listed at the moment: A five-bedroom / three-bath “duplex-down” with 3,500 square feet, priced in the $970s, and two three-bedroom / two-bath single-floor units with 1,950 square feet of living space, priced in the $690s and $790s. The project’s Web site mentions a third three-bedroom identical to the other two and priced in the $710s, but that unit is not listed in the MLS.

The homes appear to have the expected mix of finishes – hardwood floors in the living areas, stone in the bathrooms, stainless-steel appliances, Grohe and Kohler fixtures – along with some added flourishes like crown molding in the living and dining areas and gas fireplaces. All of the homes have balconies facing out onto Briar and decks in the back.

As its name suggests, Briar by the Park is about a block west of Lincoln Park. (According to Google Maps, it’s a five-minute walk to Belmont Harbor.) It shares the 400 block of West Briar Place with Grand Briar Condominiums, a decidedly different type of project, but one with similar price points on the high end. The 11-story rehab at 433 W Briar Pl still has 25 one- to three-bedrooms for sale at prices ranging from the $250s to the $890s.
