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?
