Situated in the fashionable Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, the Lowell House at 88 W. Schiller is a sought-after Chicago condo development that offers quality construction, roomy units and the modern amenities and services you need to live in comfort and style in the big city. Built in 1968, this structure houses 252 individual units and includes general vicinity parking to accommodate residents with vehicles. The various floorplans consist of anywhere from studio residences to 2-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 396 square feet in which to put that plush wrap-around couch and the new flat screen TV, but the average size is 430 square feet for the main room. Either way, you'll have enough room to spread out and watch your television shows on those quiet nights, or host great get-togethers for the occasional celebratory event or impromptu gathering. 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 more fiscal-aspects you're probably interested in knowing. 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 88 W. Schiller, the average price per square foot is $283, with the minimum listing price for the building at $187,900. While certain size units sell better than others, a studio residence sold for $189,900 as recently as July of 2007. The maximum length of time a unit in this building stays on the market (which means the time between listing and closing) is 94 days. The minimum number of days it takes to sell real estate in this Great building is 41 days. Of the units that are currently listed, studios are typically on the market for an average of 38 days.
