This highly expressive contempo, built in 1992, borrows the exterior wall of the neighboring brick 3-flat for its interiors. It has the flash and provocativeness of something you might find on a university campus. And it's just outside the DePaul campus, where such ego is prone to spillover. As a modernist structure, there are the rudimentary "soaring spaces" and "incredible high ceilings". But they're bolstered by double-height windows, interior balconies, and a cat-walk. There's a shuffle of naturally-lit solarium spaces and an enclosed open air patio (not to mention another two terraces), and you're liable to confuse indoors and outdoors. Featured in the now-dufunct Metropolitan Home Mag, the four-bed last sold in 2004, but was listed for three years from 2008 to late 2011. The starting ask was $1.775M and the seller is now out for $1.6M.
