Despite being a newer 2006 construction, this sunny fourth-floor corner unit on Chicago’s Lower West Side looks and lives like a much older converted industrial loft. Situated at the border of the University Village and Pilsen neighborhoods, the bright home features high timber-beamed ceilings and a playful pop of yellow in its living room.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo also boasts a skyline-facing balcony, a good-sized kitchen, and an included garage space. Close to the Dan Ryan Expressway and Metra’s BNSF line, the location is well-connected for either a commute downtown or to the suburbs.
With Chicago’s Lower West Side continuing to grow and change—although at times painfully—this lofty residence could be a sound investment for the future. Seeking $355,500 plus $311 in monthly HOA fees, it’s relatively affordable to boot.
