When it comes to green building, it’s the big new-construction high-rises that steal the headlines, but I’d wager that rehabbing and reusing an existing building would in most cases have less environmental impact than bringing in all new materials. One such project is Clybourn Green, an old 18-unit apartment building at 2401 – 2409 N Clybourn Ave in Lincoln Park that’s being converted to condos.
Clybourn Green was first announced a little more than a year ago, but it seems to have stalled for most of the past year. Elizabeth Lothamer from Koenig & Stray GMAC Real Estate says she’s beginning to market the project again, and they’ve just completed a model on site.
Lothamer says that two of the building’s six one-bedroom condos have sold, and that 16 one- and two-bedrooms are still available. The two-bedrooms are between 1,050 and 1,100 square feet, Lothamer says, and I wasn’t able to get an estimate on the size of the one-bedrooms, but they look quite a bit smaller. One-bedrooms start in the $190s, two-bedrooms start in the $280s, and there are also a few top-floor two-bedroom / two-baths with 13-foot ceilings that are priced in the $330s.
Lothamer expects monthly assessments for most units to stay around $200. For a complete list of Clybourn Green’s eco-friendly features, check out this Yo post from last year, or visit Clybourn Green’s Web site.
