This beautifully-constructed high-rise condo development has been around since 1969 and offers all the modern amenities you need to live in comfort and style in the big city. It houses 231 separate units that are spread out over 31 floors and come with assigned/deeded parking to accommodate residents who own their own vehicles. In addition to the well-maintained craftsmanship of the building, this Lakeview dwelling offers several different layouts with varying numbers of bedrooms and unit size.


On average, the residences in this building provide 2 square feet of living space. The choice of floorplans include anywhere from studio to 3 bedrooms, which can range in area from 132 square feet to 200+ square feet. But home isn't only about where you lay your head at night-the rest of the place is just as essential when looking for that perfect abode. The cook in the household will find the kitchens here are divine, covering 63 square feet of the entire unit. That's enough room to whip up a delicious five-course meal for the occasional dinner party, which can be hosted in the 225 square-foot dining room.


In addition to the unit basics, you'd probably like to know some of the figures behind the fundamentals-more specifically, what's a place like this in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago going to cost? Of course, the numbers change depending on the particular unit, but the lowest listing price in the building is just below the market price and the average is just or slightly above the market price. The latest studio residence to sell went for $180,000 in July of 2007. Now, on top of the asking price, it's important to think about the added expenses residents need to pay in taxes every year. For property in this building, the taxes generally cost $1,506 annually, so factor that in when calculating that mortgage rate.
