Sold Stuff

The past Hyde Park residence of architect-brothers George Fred and William Keck has just sold. The five months it took to do so is a considerably longer spell than we expected, considering the legacy involved and what seemed a fair asking price. Listing for $449K, the 1,600-square-foot 3/2 unit closed for $387,500. It's one of three co-ops belonging to the celebrated Keck-Gottschalk-Keck Apartments, among Chicago's rare early modern representatives of the International Style. Whether that meant diddly to the buyer is unknown, but it means something here at Curbed. The unit—complete with cork floors, glass block windows, wood-burning fireplace, and large balcony—sold as a co-op, but one owner's revelations suggest the building is transitioning to condo.
