This 3-bedroom in Randolph Place at 165 N. Canal on the Near West Side just came on the market.
It has the coveted north and east views which means it looks over the Chicago River.
It has 2 balconies and 2-car tandem parking.
The kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
All 3 bedrooms are enclosed, which is preferred (even for those buying in loft buildings.)
But just to the north of this building, on the other side of the El tracks, the office building called River Point is being built over the railroad tracks.
And just to the east of this building, after more than 10 years of debate as to what, if anything, would be built on the sliver of land over the railroad tracks right next to 165 N. Canal, another office building has started construction called 150 N. Riverside.
You can see renderings of what 150 N. Riverside is expected to look like on Curbed here.
Part of the property will have a park (if you scroll down you on the Curbed link can see it in the pictures.)
Currently, the east facing units in this building look out onto the River with the train tracks right in front of the building (and yes- you CAN hear the trains going by.) With the new building, the train tracks will be covered (as they are by the Boeing building across the street.)
But certainly some views will be impacted by the new office buildings.
Does nearby construction influence your decision to buy?
Or is it just part of city living?
James Horwath at Berkshire KoenigRubloff has the listing. See the pictures here.
