Waterman Place in Evanston gives alternative to high-rise living

Waterman Place

Waterman Place, at 651 Hinman Ave, might be a good alternative for Evanston home-seekers miffed about the proposed high-rise developments in the popular lakefront suburb.

The yellow brick building is a vintage classic: it was built in 1904 and designed by H.H. Waterman. Converted from apartments, the building will have six units with three bedrooms and two baths, says Matt Kaplan, a sales agent with Prairie Shore Properties, which is marketing the project.

There will be two condos per floor, each ranging from 1,650 to 1,860 square feet. All units have 140-square-foot porches. The penthouse units will have lofts that overlook the living / dining room areas, according to Kaplan. He says prices range from the $420s to the $520s, and all units are available.

Features include 42-inch Woodharbor cabinets, granite counters, GE stainless steel appliances, Kohler sinks and faucets, oak floors in the bedrooms and natural stone floors in the bathrooms.

Four garage parking spaces, each priced at  $25,000, are reserved for units on the top two floors, according to Kaplan. Parking is not included for the first-floor units, he says.

Deliveries are scheduled in early 2008, he says.
