If green space is what you’re after, being close to the river can provide a dose of nature without an inflated price. Foster Manor, a condo conversion in North Park from Architrend Development, is only half a block from the water, and it’s a short walk from several riverfront parks.
The courtyard building, at 3115 W Foster Ave, has studio, one- and two-bedroom condos with hardwood floors, new appliances and individual basement storage units.
A hefty upgrade package is also available for $15,000 that includes stainless steel appliances, granite counters, maple cabinets and stone baths.
The building is 30 percent sold, according to Bill Gonzalez, an agent for Murray & Harrison Realty. Prices range from the $110s to the $180s, he says.
