I had a showing at the 512 McClurg for unit 4406 and unit 5806. They are both large one bedroom unit with around 965 square feet, they both facing southeast, so you have beautiful view of the lake and the south shore line. Unit 5806 is on the top floor, it has marble entry and woodfloor in the living room. The 4406 has some built in closet in the unit. They are both excellent unit with granite kitchen counters and SS appliances. Unit 5806 has nice paint on the bath room and shower door. They both has a large walk in closet in the bedroom.
The 512 McClurg is located in the heart of the city with AMC theater and Walgreens underneath the building, Domicks is one block away, walk to Michigan Avenue, the busiest shopping street, walk to the lake front and Navy Pier. Lots of nice restaurants…
The building has a nice sun deck that you could do grill, a party room, just finished nice gym, most friendly doorman…
The 5806 is listed for $347,000 and the 4406 is listed for $349,000, this is the best price I have ever seen.
These two buildings are linked together, located next to the Chicago river. There are studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms for sale right now starting from $129,900 (which is a short sale, a contract is pending on the unit) to $399,900. There is another unit going for short sale one bedroom unit listed for $229,900 which has a pending contract on the unit too. These two buildings were built in 1991, the assessment for two bedroom are over $600. The draw back of this building is no washer and dryer in the most of the units, but I understand that you could put them in. Also, since they are low buildings, there are not so much view in the unit. But if you want to live in the neighborhood, this is one of the cheapest buildings in the neighborhood. Walking distance to the AMC movie theater, the Dominick grocery store, tons of restaurants, the lakeshore path, the Navy Pier, the Michigan Ave…
There are lots of studios built at the 512 McClurg, each floor has 4 units, but you will be amazed to find out that these units are so easy to be rented, the reason is the building is located in a great area, very close to the Northwestern hospital and the school, so lots of residents and students live here. The studios are quite large around 600 square feet with nice size kitchen and marble bathroom. I had a client who bought a studio last year and we have rented it out in the winter even within a month, this is very good in Chicago as we all know that not so many people would like to move in the winter here. Currently there is only one studio available for $1,250 per month which has views to the lake.
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!
This is a large convertible, actually you have your own room, unique convertible unit, with great view to the Navy Pier, the lake and the big Ferry Wheel! Great location! The building offers 24 hour doorman, indoor swimming pool, large gym, sun deck and party room, it a must see. The owner just added back splash in the unit, with new paint throughout.
