The reconstructed 1890s row house at 863 N LaSalle whose facade resembles brushed concrete (it's Dryvit synthetic stucco) is still playing the market four solid years after its initial listing for $3.4M. When we wrote up the mini-manse last July, the ask sat at $2.98M. It's now available for $2.5M. To recap, the seller spent several years modernizing and refinishing the 5,000 square-footer to the point where it offers high tech A/V and lighting systems, limestone floors, marble baths, a chef's kitchen, wet bar, seven fireplaces, exposed brick, 24-foot ceilings in the great room, and a landscaped backyard. Oh, and there's an elevator for the immobile and/or incapacitated. One potential aggravation is the heavy construction set to commence down the road at LaSalle & Chicago once a 33-story apartment tower breaks ground.
