New condo developments in the South Loop faltered during the for-sale market crash in the last decade, and a number of them were converted to rentals. That was bad news for condo developers, but good news for apartment renters.
Burnham Pointe, 730 S Clark St, is a good illustration of the advantages that built-as-a-condo buildings offer renters.
Burnham Pointe has high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies, upgraded finishes and in-unit washer / dryers.
Floor plans are spacious and have good closet space. Kitchens have ample cabinet and counter space.
Six of the 1-bedroom tiers have a bath-and-a-half, a feature that’s great for couples and for people who like to entertain.
Burnham Pointe offers a full suite of amenities, including an indoor resistance pool, whirlpool and sauna. The fitness center has cardio and strength-training equipment and a yoga studio. It’s adjacent to a sprawling outdoor deck with grilling areas and views of nearby Printers Row lofts. The building also has a large party room and a business center.
Burnham Pointe is pet-friendly and has a private dog run. Parking is available in an on-site garage.
Burnham Pointe has a mix of 1- and 2-bedroom, 2-bath and penthouse apartments. Floor plans and near real-time rent and availability info can be accessed online.
