Located in the historic Old Town Triangle neighborhood of Chicago, 1636 N. Wells is an impressive high-rise condo building that offers roomy units and all the modern amenities and services you need to live in comfort and style in the big city. Built in 1971, this structure houses 420 individual units and includes assigned/deeded parking to accommodate residents with vehicles. The various floorplans consist of anywhere from studios to 3 bedroom units with an average master bedroom size of 165 square feet and a second bedroom of 132 square feet. However, if you prefer a bit more space to sleep in, there are 200+ square-foot bedrooms available in several units.


Some of the building's smaller living rooms provide 247 square feet in which to put that plush wrap-around couch and the new flat screen TV, but the average size is 247 square feet for the main room. Either way, you'll have enough room to spread out and watch television on those quiet nights, or host great get-togethers for the occasional dinner party. Just make sure no little four-legged friends sneak into the party because it would violate the building strict no-pets policy.


While the ability to host parties is often an essential factor in buying a home, there are other financial aspects that you're probably interested in learning about. For example, what the price per sq. foot is for the units in the building and what the properties here are selling for these days. Well, lucky for you, we've got that info right here, too.


At 1636 N. Wells, the average price per square foot is $328, with the minimum listing price for a unit in the Americana Towers usually hovers right around the market price. While larger units tend to sell better than others, a studio recently sold for $168,000 in May of 2007. On top of the pricing data, it's nice to know the market stats for the particular site as well. Once again, we've got that right here for you. The maximum length of time a unit in this building stays on the market (which means the time between listing and closing) is 132 days. The minimum number of days it takes to sell real estate in this Lincoln Park building is 30 days.
