There’s something special about industrial lofts, and fortunately for Chicagoans, there are plenty of options to choose from at any given time. Developers began converting older industrial buildings into residences throughout the city back in the ‘80s, and the style has proven to be so popular that developers are often constructing new residential buildings with loft-like units. With exposed brick walls, tall timber ceilings, and large windows that allow in heaps of natural light, true industrial lofts make for surprisingly cozy residences. Here’s a look at a few lofts in various price ranges that are currently up for grabs.
With an asking price of $269,000 this unit in Logan Square’s Silk Factory Lofts is quite cozy and affordable. There’s a good chance this one will fetch more than the listed price as the listing agent is calling for best offers to be made by the end of the day today. The location near The 606, the Armitage and California bus lines, and the bustling Milwaukee Avenue Corridor is tough to beat.
Here’s a unit for grabs in the coveted Clocktower Lofts development in Bucktown. While the finishes are nothing to get too excited over, the $369,000 asking price isn’t unreasonable for a two-bedroom unit with included parking. According to the listing notes, the kitchen appliances are new and the loft features in-unit laundry.
This three-bedroom unit in Lakeview’s Palace Lofts is a perfect example of why it’s never a good idea to drag your feet on making an offer. After only a couple of days on the market, this one scored a contract. The unit impresses and the $625,000 asking price was fair enough to earn this one some attention from prospective buyers. There’s always a chance that the deal on this one could fall through, so it’s worth keeping an eye on.
There’s a lot to like about this large two-bedroom, two-bathroom loft in River North, and for $949,000, it can be yours. The duplex unit features tall ceilings and an open floor plan, but this one also has some next extras and custom finishes. Its boasts a dramatic staircase which leads to the upper level bedrooms and a nice rooftop deck space. Two parking spaces are also included in the asking price.
