Faithful conversion: The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary

It’s been more than a year since we checked in with the former Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church conversion at 2411 W Walton St known as “The Sanctuary,” so to honor the Sabbath I went and snapped a few photos yesterday. (Compare with an earlier rendering.)

Romeo Kapudija, the president of Urban View Development Group, says that only two of the building’s 13 condos are still available. The other 11 are either sold or under contract, and some of them are already occupied.

According to Kaptdija, the two remaining condos are the best in the building. “We knew right from day one that these were our most unique units,” said Kapudija. Before putting them on the market, Kaptdija let several Realtors walk through and later priced them according to their estimates.

The smaller of the two faces Walton Street, a 3,200-square-foot, three-bedroom triplex, is listed in the $690s. The larger one is a lavish 3,400 square-foot three-bedroom, three-bathroom affair located on the east wing (the part that still looks like a church), and it’s listed in the $890s.

The larger unit has seven balconies, including a 600 square-foot sun deck, and it incorporates the church’s old choir loft into a dining room. Kapudija describes that unit as being more like a townhouse than a condo because of its size and because it has its own private entrance.

Enclosed private parking comes with both condos.

Some interior construction is still being done on both of the available units, but it should be completed within a month. Kaptdija’s wife, Ashley Jung of Chicago Properties, has the listings.
