This Friday, the IOC will announce the host city for the 2016 Summer Olympics. While Chicago may not be a shoo-in, it is a reasonable contender. The Olympic Village, which would house 17,000 competitors, is planned to be built in the South Side neighborhood of Douglas. Below are some of the new home options in the Douglas community area.
There are five three-bedroom / 2.5-bath townhomes at 237 – 245 E 33rd St. Ranging from the $460s to the $470s, each home, marketed by Coldwell Banker, has 2,350 square feet, a balcony, marble or limestone baths, and an attached two-car garage off the alley.
MetroPro Realty is listing two new single-family homes at 3209 and 3211 S Rhodes Ave. Listed in the $820s, each three-story home has 3,500 square feet, fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom, a deck, and an attached 2.5-car garage. Located in a secluded area between Lake Meadows Park to the north and Groveland Park to the south, residents will enjoy ample outdoor space while being in the heart of the Chicago Olympics, if Chicago hosts the games.
