We often run across new listings or price changes on smaller developments outside of the downtown area that might not warrant a big post, but might interest our readers nonetheless. Here are just a handful we’ve seen recently:
1919 West Crystal in Wicker Park
Five of the nine condos in this new Studio Dwell-designed building at 1919 W Crystal St in Wicker Park (shown above) were placed back on the MLS last week. Three two-bedroom / two-baths with 1,633 to 1,725 square feet are now priced in the $560s to $570s, and two three-bedroom / two-baths with 2,125 square feet are listed in the $660s.
Prices in April had ranged from the $590s to the $730s.
The units have floor-to-ceiling windows with ceiling heights up to 20 feet; custom staircases with floating oak risers; white oak hardwood floors; kitchens with SubZero and Miele appliances, Caesarstone and granite countertops, and Arclinea cabinets; baths with limestone and marble finishes, and Hansgrohe, Duravit, and Toto fixtures; private outdoor terraces; and surround-sound wiring.
2523 North Southport in Lincoln Park
Rich Kasper of Conlon Real Estate just listed all of the condos in this new six-flat (at right and below) at 2523 N Southport Ave in the Wrightwood Neighbors area of Lincoln Park.
The building’s two duplex-downs have three bedrooms and 2.5 baths and are both listed in the $770s. Two second-floor two-bedroom / two-baths are listed in the $470s, and two “penthouse” two-bedroom / two-baths with rooftop decks are priced in the $570s. When Jeremy toured the building in mid-June, the two-bedroom units ranged from the $490s to $590s.
Finishes include hardwood floors throughout; kitchens with Viking appliance packages; baths with steam showers, rain showers, and body sprays; and garage parking.
Luxhaven in Lake View
Another of Kasper’s properties, Trianon Development’s eight-unit Luxhaven (seen immediately below and at bottom) at 1740 W Cornelia Ave in Lake View, has six homes on the MLS, including four that have seen modest price reductions ($10,000 to $30,000) in recent days.
Available homes include two one-bedroom / one-baths priced in the $310s and $320s, two two-bedroom / two-baths priced in the $440s and $470s, and three three-bedroom / two-baths, two of which have rooftop access, priced from the $540s to $670s.
In April, when Mark Boyer toured Luxhaven with developer Jody Libman, prices ranged from the $330s to the $720s.
Features include island kitchens with 3-inch concrete countertops and 42-inch flat-panel cabinets; baths with natural stone floors and steam showers; and private balconies and terraces. Garage parking is included.
