Inside one of Park Kingsbury's luxury lofts

Park Kingsbury Luxury Lofts model, 678 N Kingsbury St, Chicago

More changes have come to the Cataldo/Marovitz Group’s Park Kingsbury Luxury Lofts, located at 678 N Kingsbury St in River North, but none of them appear to have affected the project’s price points.

I reported in late June that Koenig & Strey GMAC Real Estate and CRF Marketing had taken over sales duties from Rizzo Realty Group, that the project’s smaller floor plans were growing in overall square footage, and that prices were increasing by approximately $70,000 to $500,000 per plan. CRF’s defection from Koenig & Strey and subsequent merger with Jameson Real Estate last month resulted in Park Kingsbury changing hands once again, and Jameson is now managing the development.

Park Kingsbury Luxury Lofts unit 109, 678 N Kingsbury St, ChicagoPark Kingsbury’s Web site still says its 27 units range in price from the $470s to $1.57 million, just as they did before the merger, and those amounts jibe with Jameson’s new MLS listings. The least expensive of those homes is #109, a two-bedroom, two-bath loft with 1,190 square feet, seen at right.

The unit is on the building’s north side, overlooking West Huron Street. According to the floor plan, a 19-5″ x 13-4″ living / dining area has windows looking down onto Huron and has access to a north-facing 8-9″ x 5-1″ terrace. The master bedroom, measuring 10-6″ x 13-3″, is accessible from the living area and island kitchen. Two wall closets form an entryway into a 8-8″ x 9′ master bathroom, which is bedecked in marble and Decolav, Kohler, and Toto fixtures.

The second bedroom, second bath and washer / dryer closet make up the units southwest corner, and are the first things a person will see upon entering the unit.

A few things stand out about Fitzgerald Associates Architects‘ design at first glance. The home has two extra wall closets in addition to the two in the master bedroom and the one in the second bedroom, and they all look to be about the same size. Also, the master bedroom and second bedroom have sliding doors instead of hinged doors at their entrances. The positioning of the second bathroom next to the second bedroom is a good touch – their doorways are right next to one another, and both are out of the living room’s line of sight, so the occupant of the second bedroom should have some degree of privacy.

Four units are under contract at Park Kingsbury, according to its Web site.
