Last night, I attended a RedEye-sponsored open house at LOACQ‘s Opera Lofts in Bronzeville. It isn’t uncommon for RedEye to host these events, but this is the first one I’ve attended. Some members of the Chicago Opera Theater performed for visitors, and several units – both furnished and unfurnished – were open for guests to tour.
Whenever we ask sales agents what’s special about Opera Lofts, they always emphasize the development’s “unique floor plans,” so that’s what I was looking for last night. When I got there, I bumped into a group of visitors who were just returning from the model units. “You’ve got to check out unit 502,” they told me. So that’s what I did.
Unit 502 is indeed a unique floor plan. The two-bedroom / two-bath loft has two staircases leading to the lofted master bedroom and bathroom, 19.5-foot ceiling heights in the living room and a small den or office space beneath the master bedroom. The second bedroom is separated from the living room with a full-height wall. The brochure says the unit is 1,842 square feet, and it’s listed in the $460s.
A floor plan for unit 502 is below. Look out for the video I shot at the event last night.
