This bright, two-level timber loft in Chicago’s Printer’s Row neighborhood provides a relatively affordable path to homeownership near the heart of the city’s high-rent downtown business district. Located in the appropriately named ‘Printer’s Row Lofts’—a brick and stone 1908 warehouse building designed by architect Henry B. Wheeler—the cozy home features an open living space, two bedrooms, two baths, and a small but perfectly acceptable kitchen.
Industrial touches include sturdy hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, and heavy-timbered ceilings. Additional building amenities include door staff, on-site management, a bike room, and additional storage. Convenient to the LaSalle Street Metra station as well as the Harrison CTA Red Line stop, the home is currently seeking $365,000. Monthly garage parking is available though not included in the $422 monthly association dues.
While newer apartment buildings may be rising nearby, the stock of older loft style condos in the Printer’s Row neighborhood is only increasing in desirability as the South Loop heats up. The area is poised to add new office space with projects like the Old Post Office as well as gain new access to amenities like the Chicago River.
