Lakeview East is a pretty dense enclave, so much of the residential development is in rental buildings converting to condos. We perused the offerings and decided to highlight half a dozen conversions ranging from 16 units to more than 250.
The neighborhood has grown pricy in recent years, but condos in active developments are available for less than $200,000 (see Kroupa Development’s Sheridan Tower, which drew a long list of comments when we previously posted on it).
The top end on conversions reaches well above half a million dollars, and as you might have guessed from the price range, there’s a wide variety of product too, from beautiful classic buildings to completely nondescript complexes. The list below is not complete, but it should provide a good feel for this niche if you’re in the market for a condo in or near Lakeview East (we threw in Waveland Place too, cause, you know, it’s close enough).
Twenty Nine Thirty Sheridan Tower is a 252-unit condo conversion at 2930 N Sheridan Rd. The high-rise, on the edge of Lincoln Park overlooking Diversey Harbor, has homes with one or two bedrooms and one or two baths. Genna Hill, of @Properties, is marketing the condos, which are priced from the $180s.
