North McClurg Court

Observations and insights into real estate happenings along N. McClurg Ct. in downtown Chicago

East Randolph Street, Chicago

Showing at the streeterville

February 28th, 2010 · Uncategorized

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.

February 25th, 2010 · Uncategorized

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!

Showing at 512 mcclurg and a couple other properties

September 16th, 2009 · Uncategorized

My client is looking for studios or small one bedroom unit, we went to see one of the studios at the 512 Mcclurg, the unit is very nice and clean, new SS appliances, new carpet and fresh paint. View to the south with lots of day light, you can see Chicago river very clearly!  Lots of closet spaces. the kitchen size is very nice, even bigger than some of the one bedroom unit in other buildings. Building was built in 2003.

The we went to 550 St Clair, this is a brand new building with the taste of the west loop buildings, such as exposed cement on roof and in the hall way. Kitchen is like a wall kitchen other than the wrap around kind.

The third one is at the 450 Waterside, this one has a balcony, and all new appliances with marble entry and marble bathroom, washer drier in the unit. large walk in closet space. This is facing south so there is lake view.

The asking price of the above three properties are similiar, my client likes the first one and the third one.
