Tucked away in a low-key area of the West Loop with quite a few surface lots to fill, we found this 1-bed condo at Adams and Racine. On the market for $230K, the listing claims it has a "loft-like feel," but other than the high ceilings, we can't really find any loft bona fides like exposed brick, ductwork, or columns. Having said that, the interiors of the 800-square foot unit are still plenty stylish, especially given the modest price tag. It features hardwood floors, a bathroom with marble floors, and a gas fireplace. Located on the 7th floor, it also boasts a large private balcony with nice views of big man Willis. Retail offerings in the area are a bit limited, but there's also easy downtown access via the Blue Line, just a few blocks away.
