This nine-unit townhouse development at 7201 N Oakley Ave caught my eye when Joe included it in his list of “townhouses north of North” in August, but we haven’t heard anything about it since. Today, I gave Colleen Stein from Coldwell Banker a call to find out more about the development.
Stein says that construction and marketing for the project began about a year ago, and since then one home has sold. “When the project started, a year ago, this wasn’t a market for pre-construction, so we’re finding we need to have a model,” Stein says, adding that a furnished model will be ready in a few weeks.
All of the townhouses have three-bedrooms and two baths, and they each have about 2,000 square feet of living space and an attached two-car garage. Prices range from the $390s to the $550s. Stein says the four-level homes are organized with common and family areas on the lower two floors, with the three bedrooms on the top two floors.
Structural construction is completed, but the unsold homes have not been finished out yet. I’m interested to see what this development looks like in person, because the rendering shows a very modern building, similar in some ways to The Wabash Club in the South Loop, but in this photo I pulled from the development Web site shows a somewhat more conventional building.
