Fulton House, a former cold storage warehouse along the confluence of the Chicago River, has come on the market for under $800,000.

The 15-story property was built in 1898, but it is most notable for conversion into 106 residential units by architect Harry Weese from 1979 to 1981. A few of Weese’s most notable Chicago buildings include the River Cottages and Seventeenth Church of Christ. He also led significant restorations of Adler and Sullivan’s Auditorium Theatre and Daniel Burnham’s Field Museum.

The southeast penthouse unit features three bedrooms and two bathrooms in a duplex layout. The black and white industrial renovations (totaling about $50,000) include new hardwood flooring, custom cabinets, a rain shower, Nest thermostat, and smart lighting.

The Fulton River District unit has a perfect view of the Lake Street bridge and the confluence of the river. Plus, the building has a few perks with one-of-a-kind sights as well. The riverfront sundeck sits next to the historic River Cottages and just across the river from the raised Chicago & Northwestern Railway bridge. There’s a boat dock available to residents and the Riverwalk is right around the bend.
