A 25-unit Logan Square live-work building near the midway point of the Bloomingdale Trail has an opening for one or two communally-inclined creatives. It pays to buy into the live-work ethos, particularly when an 1,100-square-foot loft bordering the city's new and future recreational ideal can be had for $189,900. The living space has hardwood floors, high ceilings, good natural light, an open bedroom and kitchen, and a utility sink for neutralizing the day's detritus before it makes it to the couch. The work happens primarily in shared spaces, which include a proper workshop w/ public restroom and a large common gallery also suited for events, parties, and rehearsals. Finally, a central courtyard that looks like an overgrown grade school recess yard provides some extra ventilation.
