While it hasn't graduated anyone since the late 70s, don't let that deter you from making your residence in St. Michael's High School building. Built in 1928 as the St. Michael's Church campus was expanding, the immaculately-restored 600-student school building was converted to condos in 1988, ten years after the school's closing. The building that preceded it opened in 1887 as a two-year parish school. St. Michael's Church, just behind the school, survived the Chicago Fire partly intact, and was promptly repaired. Another piece of the old campus is now home to rentals. The unit we're dishing today is among the larger ones, at 2,400 sf with three beds and three baths. The ceiling heights start at 14' and go up from there. There's plenty of exposed brick, walnut plank floors, a private deck, communal roof, and underground parking. It last sold in '08 for $925K, and now wants even more, asking $995K. No concession to recession here.
