Concept vs. execution: Chantico South

No false advertising here: Chantico South, located at 1621 S Carpenter St in Pilsen, came pretty close to matching Lipe Property Company‘s original sketch. The corrugated metal siding and those Aztec patterns on the balconies remind me a little too much of a Chipotle, but maybe buyers are into that sort of thing. I’ll admit, its oranges and reds do add some much-needed color to the street.

Three Chantico South condos are listed at the moment: an 824 square-foot one-bedroom / one-bath, a 1,016 square-foot two-bedroom / one-bath, and a 1,492 square-foot three-bedroom / two-bath, priced in the $190s, $290s and $400s, respectively. Cook County records don’t show any sales at Chantico South, and all nine of its homes were available when Jameson took on its marketing duties this summer. Prices at that time reached up into the $440s for an 1,800 square-foot, two-bedroom duplex.

Open houses at Chantico South start back up in a couple of weeks, so maybe I’ll have a chance to step through some of these homes and even grab myself a burrito bol on my way out.
