For $290K: A Comfy Perch in a Milton Schwartz Modernist Box

New, 8 comments


There's a sensibly-priced opening at architect Milton Schwartz's modernist 320 W Oakdale. The 1955 glass tower is strikingly different than the many prewar stone and brick apartment blocks that populate East Lake View, and better than the generation of modernist slabs to follow. This 1,600-square-foot two-bed is yours for $289,900 with a monthly assessment of $1,028. It sits on the 17th floor with lake and city views, enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows and a bevy of mirrors. The unit's openness and simple configuration essentially means you're living in a box within a box. Since the building preceded the era of the parking podium, rental spaces are available next-door.
