Sales update: 20 homes available at Avenue East

Click to enlargeStop me if you’ve heard this one before: A downtown high-rise was closer to sellout six months ago than it is today.

In September, 15 of Avenue East‘s 133 condominiums were still on the market. Today, there are 20 homes for sale at 160 E Illinois St, and the tower’s developer, Residential Homes of America, has started throwing in free upgrades as an incentive to buy.

One one-bedroom condominium is selling in the $390s; the remaining 19 units have two bedrooms and 2.5 baths, with prices topping out at $1.8 million.

The free upgrades differ from home to home, but since they’re all available for occupancy, there’s a good chance that what you see is what you’ll get.

One thing that still isn’t free, however, is parking. Spaces are still available from $40,000 to $60,000.

The spring thaw’s right around the corner, Yo reader – will a few more buyers warm to Avenue East as the year progresses?
