I have always like this building – 512 Mcclurg, great building, great amenities, party room, sun deck, 24 hour door man. The good part of this building is that it has very low assessment, the reason is it has a Holmes gym in the building which has a nice indoor pool, but in this case, the building owners do not need to pay assessment for maintain the swimming pool. Plus there is a great discount for people who live in the building to use the gym.
Currently there 27 listings, starting from studio $214,900 to three bedrooms unit asking for $989,000. There are quite a few activities in the building, the reason is the location if perfect. Very close to grocery stores, AMC theater, many restaurants, Navy Pier etc.
I had a showing for a potential renter last week. We went to see the City View, 400 N McClurg, the one bedroom unit is pretty big around 850 square feet. There are different views from this building, the view to the lake is very nice, Navy Pier and the lake. This building is built in 2000 so the equipments are quite new. The indoor pool is very nice, they also offer yoga classes. Right now they have pretty good price for one bedroom unit, starting from $1,395 and they waive all the move in fee and application fees. The location is right next to the Chicago River, very quiet street with one block to the grocery stores and the AMC theater.
We also went to see a couple of the one bedroom at the 474 lakeshore Dr. There is one with great view to the lake, it is south view to the south lake shore line, the city view and view to the Chicago River too. This one unit the asking rent is $1,500. There are rental parking available in the building for $225 per month. Also, this unit has washer and dryer in the unit. The building has indoor lap pool, new and just remolded gym, this is very close to Navy Pier, the lakeshore and the Michigan avenue. So it’s hard to decide as these are both good choices.
The one bedroom unit 2306 at the 474 lakeshore Dr was rented last month. This unit has great view to Navy Pier, the lake and the big Ferry Wheel, very pretty in a sunny day. I like the swimming pool in the building, it is a decent size plus the view is to the Chicago River and the lake, really nice. The gym size is big, there is a party room and a sun deck in the building. Right now there are rental units starting from $1,200 which is a very reasonable price!
This building is located at a great location, walking distance to Navy Pier, the lake front, fox and Obel grocery store, AMC movie theater, Walgreen, Dominick, lots of restaurants, walking to Michigan avenue, I can’t think more benefit for this location!
