Situated at the southeast corner of the City Towne Lofts building at 525 N. Halsted, this high-ceilinged, renovated loft offers proximity to downtown Chicago and won’t necessarily break the bank. While not quite a “one-bedroom” in the strictest definition of the term, the unit does separate the sleeping area from the rest of the unit with a partial wall. Sunlight floods the living area through several large windows, though some of it gets obstructed by the aforementioned partition.
If the hardwood floors and overhead timber beams aren’t enough to satisfying your lust for the rustic, the home’s sitting area sports large built-in bookcases constructed from reclaimed lumber. The exposed vertical copper pipes in the middle of the updated kitchen island, however, are an unusual choice but do perhaps add a bit of industrial flair (if you’re into that sort of thing).
The freshly listed loft is currently seeking $242,000. The $299 monthly assessment is on the low side, especially given the former industrial building’s 1935 vintage. The price includes parking and access to a rooftop deck, storage room, and fitness facility. Located just off the rapidly-developing Milwaukee Avenue corridor, the home is a short walk to and from the CTA’s Blue Line.
