Lofts coming to 1739 N Milwaukee Ave

1739 N Milwaukee Ave

Patrons of the Wicker Park / Bucktown Aldi should recognize these buildings. The smaller structure (at left) walls off the store’s parking lot in the 1700 block of Milwaukee Avenue, just south of the Bloomingdale line.

The larger building, located at 1739 N Milwaukee Ave, is slated for a gut rehab courtesy of Five Star Development & Design. Realtor Rich Kasper of Century 21 Sussex & Reilly isn’t ready to release price points for the project, so for now I’ll have to rely on what he’s advertising on the site’s big banner.

Five Star will convert the building into eight duplex and single-floor lofts with modern finishes. Living areas will have oversized windows once those glass bricks are gone, and kitchens will feature custom walnut cabinets, Dacor stainless-steel appliances and Grohe fixtures.

Our Quick Guide notes two other loft projects going on in the immediate area: The Baer Lofts at 1927 W Milwaukee Ave, and 2105 W Concord Pl. Jameson Realty Group lists Baer Lofts’ one- and two-bedroom units from the $270s to the $500s, according to Mark’s recent post, and two-bedrooms on Concord were starting in the $420s, as of last year. It’s not a stretch to expect similar price points at Kasper’s project if its units are of a similar size and layout.
