  1. When its still sitting on the market in March, I’ll come by and offer $350,000 and that will be a good deal.

  2. I’ve always liked the Ranquist developments. I thought about buying a unit before but couldn’t get over the fact on how fast “modern” will look dated.

    Location is definitely not for those who want a “neighborhood feel”. However, I like the location and I do like being in the middle of retail.

  3. [looking to buy] “I thought about buying a unit before but couldn’t get over the fact on how fast “modern” will look dated.”

    Contemporary done right should have a shelf life of at least 20 years, often times more (ie: Richard Meier homes from the 1970s) It is usually about either rotating furniture, or filling the space with timeless design. I agree that the interior of the unit in discussion probably has a shorter life span, but no different that the typical faux classical look of many new developments/refurbishments.

  4. It looks like almost 1600 gross sqft from the floor plan, why not put that on the listing? I like this place, but the location is sorta meh, not a big fan of that north/sheffield/clybourn area, being close to Pequods is a plus though

  5. “The unit is priced at the 2006 price.

    Is this property priced to sell?”

    Surely the question must be in jest….

  6. Also, judging by the letters strewn around the living/dining room, do you think G is selling his place?

  8. I really don’t like the exposed cinder block walls. If those are also the external walls and without any insulation wouldn’t that turn your open living room / kitchen into an ice box?

  9. I’ve always liked that building even though it is horribly incorporated into its surroundings. But if you actually think its a good idea to live on Clybourn Street (I don’t), that’s probably the best possible location you could find. But that price is stupid.

  10. I lived in this building and I too enjoyed being surrounded by retail – though I used to live at Chestnut/Michigan avenue. For any people with kids considering this location, the park across the street is somewhat yuck, but the exceedingly awesome Adams park is a short walk away and a buy buy baby is now open. The walk to whole foods isn’t bad and its easy to pop into binny’s, world market, or trader joe for some drink and random food ingredients. This place is also in the Oscar-Meyer neighborhood so that is a big plus if you want Montessori. The surrounding big box stores are mostly useful – including the container store, bed bath beyond, and even crate and barrel. Sad that borders is no longer open.

  11. Building looks cool, and the living room decor and layout looks great. However, after viewing the floor plan, I don’t like that both bedrooms are wedged right next to each other — whether you’re living there with a roommate or you’re a couple with a kid in the second room, it ensures that coitus will be rare, awkward or extremely quiet…or all of the above. This is a strange deterrent to mention, but come on, everybody is thinking it, right?! Screw parking, central ac, in unit laundry, and the other fluff amenities that crib-chatteratti want: I want comfortable space between the master and 2nd bedroom! In my condo search, it’s a serious consideration. Probably explains the reason why I’m avoiding timber loft buildings as well.

    I also don’t like that both of the bedrooms get very little daylight because of the miniature windows. Yeah I know it looks modern and “cool” (for now at least) to have them super narrow and rectangular but as pale and white as I am, I need those UV rays.

  12. As I look at the floor plan, that one small corner window in the master bedroom would make me feel depressed. I need windows and natural light!!

  13. I’m confused about the refrigerator – is it on the other side of the island from the kitchen, or is it part of the cabinetry in the kitchen?

    I can see this selling for 400.

    The fridge is a built in and is located to the right of the oven. The shiny black thing in the living room is just that… some type of shiny black thing.

  16. cinder block wall in the living room…no thanks. that needs to be drywalled.

  17. You could drywall the cinderblock for 1K….not an issue. Finishings are not the issue either…its that it fronts Clybourn and is in a commercial location that limits it.

  18. Is that a modernist steel crib? looks like a cage for the baby.

  19. I can’t decide whether this contemporary look is too cool for me, or if I am too cool for it.

    Agreed re the cinderblock wall.

    You’re not married is my guess. This couple who loves “modernism”, and look at that hilarious prison-like crib, they don’t have sex. They went to an IVF factory. This place isn’t ground floor, so they might be less paranoid than those who are, but people don’t like to have their infants in rooms far away.

    This place is loaded with phallic faucets.

    I’ve been reading some interesting economics blogs that outline how far behind (in net worth) the likely buyers of this place are (30’s). Who else wants to live on Clybourn in a place like this? I’m not sure the Seller has a take-out buyer who has the money they had when they paid.

  21. PS the photos are a crock. What happened to all the wedding gifts and clutter this couple really has? No wonder why PSA stock is at $140 per share.

  22. It’s kind of refreshing to see a baby’s room that doesn’t look like a Sherwin Williams exploded in it.

    I like the kitchen – l bigger and with more counter space than I expect in a mod unit, but the cinder block wall is too much. It’s missing some touch that integrates it with the room and makes it feel less overbearing IMO.

  23. Being a block from Frank N Dawgs might make up for being right on Clybourn.

  24. the cinder block interior wall may not be an issue to some but the fact that some architect/designer and homeowner thought it was modern is just stupid. so i guess jail cells and basements are modern too. i do like the rest of the finishes though.

    also, by looking closer at the picture with the cinder block wall, it looks as though the window wall butts up against it. there may be a difficult transition if drywalling.

    Tile it, maybe?

  26. A cinder block accent wall! Just what I’ve always wanted!

    People will look back at crap boxes like this in 8-10 years and laugh their asses off.

    We don’t know what the buyer paid yet so no one can comment about how they overpaid (or didn’t.)
