Though it's been around since 1988, this handsome condo development offers all the modern amenities you need to live in comfort and style in the big city. It houses 230 separate units with standard parking to accommodate residents who own their own vehicles. In addition to the well-maintained craftsmanship of the building, this Old Town dwelling offers several different layouts with varying numbers of bedrooms and unit size.

On average, the residences in the LaSalle Private Residences provide 1,000 square feet of living space. The choice of floorplans include anywhere from studio residences to 2-bedroom units, 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 60 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 648 square-foot dining room. And what would a get-together be without a bit of mingling before sitting down to eat? Good thing there's a large 648 square-foot living room to let your guests roam around, and not even have to worry about bumping elbows.

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 Old Town neighborhood of Chicago going to cost? Of course, the numbers change depending on the particular unit, listing prices hover right around market price. The latest studio residence to sell went for $191,500 in April of 2007. In addition to 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 $2,202 annually, so factor that in when calculating that mortgage rate.
