Although many new residential developments try to nod to the Chicago architectural aesthetic, few have hit the nail on the head the way S&S Home Builders has with a townhouse development in West Ridge, writes Dan Schuyler.
In the July issue of New Homes, Dan profiles Sacramento Square, a 30-unit project on Sacramento Avenue, between between Devon and Peterson avenues.
Location and appearance are critical factors in the eyes of a prospective buyer, but Sacramento Square offers much more.
“With prices from $389,000, we are offering 2,400 square feet of townhome living at condominium prices,” says Michael Schwartz, a principal at S&S. “We are unique in that we are the only new-construction townhome project in the entire area, and we are offering a level of value that cannot be matched by the masses of condominium units that are so prevalent on the North Side.”
The experienced developer is right on the money on both counts. From a price-point perspective, Sacramento Square will definitely turn heads, and with respect to style and type, the development is the only one of its kind in the area.
Although Sacramento Square pays considerable homage to the historical architectural heritage of the neighborhood and the city, the unit design and amenities accommodate the desires and tastes of today’s forward-thinking buyers.
