“Seventy-five percent of the people purchasing from us are doing so because they like the walk-to-work, jump-on-an-El or get-right-on-the-expressway location,” reports Garrison Partners‘ Christine Lutz. “I like not fighting to get to the expressways like I do living in Lincoln Park,” is what buyers are saying, according to Lutz. “They see the value in getting in on what’s a newly-established neighborhood at our closeout prices.”
“A lot of the buyers are people who are getting sticker shock from their rental increases. People are jumping at the discounts at Trio,” says Lutz, “and the fact that we have attached, deeded garage spaces included in the pricing. The new Jewel next door has also been a big attraction. It’s beautiful, and the fact that they offer a lot of prepared foods is really nice.”
Trio’s remaining condos include one-, one-plus-den and two-bedroom layouts, with one or two baths and range from 653 to 1,259 square feet.
The loft-style homes have up to two balconies or a terrace, per plan, hardwood floors, 10.5-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, custom cabinetry, glass tile backsplashes, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and in-unit washers and dryers.
A newly-furnished model is a 1-bedroom plus den, 2-bath, 1,227 square foot unit priced at $324,900 that Lutz summarizes as “quite large.”
Trio’s on-site sales center and models are open from noon to 6 p.m. Thursdays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. You can get a glimpse of one of an earlier model in the video tour below:
