My next stop on the way north via CTA’s Red Line was the Cermak / Chinatown station, located at 138 W Cermak Rd. Due to construction on the station’s Cermak side, I exited the station onto Archer Avenue and shot this profile from the intersection of Archer and Wentworth.
Just a handful of homes have sold in the immediate vicinity over the past year, at a median price of $218,000. The approximately 30 condos, single-families, and townhomes for sale within a few blocks of the station have a median price just below $250,000, two bedrooms and two baths on average, and an average time on market of 79 days.
