Is that a solar eclipse or a condo conversion? According to developer Crescent Heights, the massive Park Place Tower, 655 W Irving Park Rd, is not only a conversion, it’s the largest one underway in the city — and it has “the highest condos on the North Side.” The 901-unit complex is offering a price discount of $10,000 to $30,000 on units in its final phase as the development nears a sellout.
The building won’t win any architecture awards, but sheer scale brings certain advantages. Because you’re sharing the cost of amenities with 900 neighbors at Park Place Tower, you have access to an Olympic-size swimming pool, a fitness center, a sundeck, a video theater, a business center, a recreation room, a salon and a gourmet market. Add to those perks a dating pool in the hundreds, and there really is no need to leave the building.
