BUCKTOWN — The owner of a loft on the top floor of a former industrial building next to the Bloomingdale Trail will be asking $1,049,000 when it hits the market later this week, according to real estate broker Sarah Maxwell.
"How fun to wake up to skyline views every morning and watch people walking, running and biking down The 606 while you have a glass of wine at night on the back deck?" Maxwell said.
Located at 1750 N. Wolcott Ave. in Bucktown, Unit No. 405 is in the southwest corner of a 26-unit building named "Signature Lofts," which offers views of Churchill Park and the elevated Bloomingdale Trail.
Formerly a warehouse for a garment company, the building was renovated for residential use in 2000.
If the condo sellers get their asking price, it would be the most expensive sale in the building to date. Previously, the most expensive sale at the Signature Lofts was for $835,000 a few years back, Maxwell said.
In May, a first floor condo sold for $600,000, according to Redfin. On Tuesday, Maxwell said that another first floor unit, a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom spot, was listed at $699,900 and is under contract with a sale pending.
Maxwell said that the 2,100 square foot condo offers a private rooftop deck and 2 garage parking spots.
"You really can't beat being on a gorgeous side street in the middle of Bucktown within great walking distance of parks, the 'L' and all the bars and restaurants, but without any of the noise, and very little car [and] foot traffic," Maxwell said.
Maxwell added, "There is nothing cookie cutter about this unit, and in a cookie cutter world, it's wonderful to have a distinctive and unique place to call home. The new owner can customize and furnish this space in any number of ways to make it go the extra mile."
