Related Introduces The “Signature” Units At Harbor View: 1901 S. Calumet In The South Loop

Feb 8 • Open house observations, South Loop • 1006 Views • 31 Comments

Many of you have been chattering about when Related would list some of the South Loop condos it bought from the bank in 2012.

Wonder no more.

Related just listed a bunch of units in Harbor View at 1901 S. Calumet.

The most expensive appears to be Unit #2501, a 3-bedroom with 1580 square feet. It is listed at $509,000. (I can’t tell if that includes the parking or not.)

The “Signature” units have 9 foot ceilings.

The kitchens have Snaidero cabinets, quartez counters, and Bosch stainless steel appliances.

The baths are stone and porcelain.

If you’re just itching for the excitement of a newly opened sales center, you can check out the open houses this weekend on all of these units from 11-4 pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Will the addition of the Snaidero cabinets and quartz counter tops (which separates them from the cherry/granite combo which is prevalent in the South Loop) help spur sales?

And if inventory is really just 100 units in the South Loop- is Related positioned to sell these quickly?

David Wolf at Related has the listings. See the pictures here.

Unit #2501: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1580 square feet

  • Taxes of $7645
  • Central Air
  • Washer/Dryer in the unit
  • Bedroom #1: 14×11
  • Bedroom #2: 11×12
  • Bedroom #3: 15×10

  3. sonies says:

    Love the views from this building, but the pictures in this listing are very confusing

  4. T.S. says:

    Would be nice to have a floorplan here, the pics are confusing, almost looks like a few different units.

    I just came across this very informative and LONG article (what else could you expect from me?) in an architectural magazine. It is a dowloadable PDF article which would be of great use especially to Realtors and others who follow the economic aspect of new properties. I was not quite sure where to place it to maximize exposure to the CC readership. If you care to remover it after you approve it feel free Sabrina.

    Beautiful apartment(s) but a bit too far south for most people. Nice building!

    “Would be nice to have a floorplan here, the pics are confusing, almost looks like a few different units.”

    hence the staging coment.

    seems like some top notch marketing photoshopping going on. as unit 1201 has the same photos with the same views. and judging from the height unit 1201 would be it seems like it would have that vantage point

  8. kevin 2 says:

    I’m sure they’re nice, but I think being that far south and that from convenient public transportation will hurt the market for these.

  9. wper says:

    It states in a crain’s profile dated 9/3/12 that Mr. Wolf is being tasked to “sell 500 South Loop condominiums acquired in June…” Many more than just 100.

  10. sonies says:

    “I’m sure they’re nice, but I think being that far south and that from convenient public transportation will hurt the market for these.”

    You’re right next to some metra tracks…

  11. kevin 2 says:

    “You’re right next to some metra tracks…”

    I doubt that someone interested in buying the the south loop (close to the city) would consider the metra tracks as an acceptable public transportation alternative. To me, the whole benefit of being in the South Loop is how quickly you can get downtown to work/entertainment without a car.

  12. sonies says:

    Ok then you have the 12 bus or the 1,3, and 4 buses two short blocks away or you could hop on the 21 cermak bus to get to the red line in a few minutes

  13. TomB says:

    Plenty of public transportation options as Sonies stated,plus you always have an abundance of cabs that go back and forth from McCormick Place.
    This is also just north of one of the proposed sites for the new DePaul gym.

  14. homedelete says:

    I do’nt think any of those photos are real. I also think they’ve overestimated the demand for $300+ psf condos.

  15. Hi Crib Chatter – This is Tricia Van Horn in Marketing for Related Midwest and Related Realty, the companies that are developing, managing, marketing and selling Harbor View at 1901 S. Calumet as well as two additional buildings in the South Loop, 1629 S. Prairie (Adler Place) and 1201 S. Prairie (The Grant). We have a total of 500 units that are for-sale within the three buildings. We appreciate the comments that are coming through as they will help us modify our marketing to be less confusing in the future. These are real photos of model residences at Harbor View. The residences actually look that good in person… we invite you to come see for yourself this weekend at our Open House from 11 – 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Currently, the photos depict a variety of units and unit sizes within the building. In addition to the Related Signature finish package depicted, we also offer the Classic package which is the original developer package. Therefore, we offer a palette to please just about every taste. Regarding floor plans, the Redfin sydication from the MLS does not pull in the floor plans. If you’d like to view floor plans, contact our sales team through our website at http://www.relatedsouthloop.com or by calling 312-832-2300. Or, if you are working with a Realtor, ask them to send you our listing on the MLS which will include the plans. Again, we appreciate the interest and feedback. We are just getting our new product out there and it’s helpful to hear from you.

    Smart idea to put “Snaidero” cabinets in there. People will be attracted to the brand, and not notice how small the kitchen actually is, and Related didn’t have to actually spend much $$$ on Snaidero because, again, the kitchen is tiny.

  17. Sabrina says:

    Thanks for the information Tricia. We appreciate you checking in.

    Just my opinion, but I think it was very smart of Related to re-do the kitchens in some of the units and put Snaidero cabinets in. Not only is the brand recognized but very few buildings have used it so at least it makes this product stand out from the rest.

    When are the other buildings going to come to market?

  18. Adler Place will have new units available in late March and The Grant will be fully complete in late April. Our sales team can provide pricing and floor plans on both buildings now if there is interest.

    My guess is that the brand is recognized because many developers use it. I wish developers would venture through the Merchandise Mart and take a look at some of the other brands that are out there. Maybe they’re too pricey for large developments though.

    Tricia, I wish your website actually had some information. Having a blank website where you can only e-mail to get more information is really useless and a waste of my time.

    “1201 S. Prairie (The Grant)”

    wait i thought 1201 s prarie is OMPwest?

  22. Hi All – On the website – I am working to get that up and running soon! Regarding the name of 1201 S. Prairie, it was One Museum Park West. Part of the re-positioning of the properties was re-naming them. It is now The Grant.

  23. Groove77 says:

    “Regarding the name of 1201 S. Prairie, it was One Museum Park West. Part of the re-positioning of the properties was re-naming them. It is now The Grant.”

    @ Tricia,

    could you answer something for me. When i looked at OMPeast i swear they said that OMPwest shared the indoor and out door pool and amenities, is this true? if so, is that different now with the *re-positioning?

  24. JJJ says:

    What did a unit like this cost when you walked up to the sales office in 2007 or whenever? Is this building occupied and functional?

  25. sonies says:

    OMPW = the grant?

    How could you associate that name with such a soulless modern overbuilt POS

  26. anon (tfo) says:

    “OMPW = the grant?
    How could you associate that name with such a soulless modern overbuilt POS”

    Just think of the two if them as Horace and Harvey. OMPW would have to be Harvey.

  27. Groove 77 – One Museum Park West and East don’t share amenities. They have always had separate pools and outdoor decks.

  28. Groove77 says:

    “One Museum Park West and East don’t share amenities. They have always had separate pools and outdoor decks.”

    @Tricia,

    thank you, for some reason that is in my memory and never remembered to check the facts.

    also i though the OMPwest at one point was going to switch to rentals? or was this just an overreaction to the market at the time?

  29. sonies says:

    “Just think of the two if them as Horace and Harvey. OMPW would have to be Harvey.”

    hahahahaha good one!

  30. jfc says:

    Picture 5 of 14 in the redfin link. Is there NO sink next to the stove? That’s a wacked out layout if I have to use a sink 10 ft away from the stove.

  31. Groove77 says:

    come on harvey wasnt that bad, he had a solid career.

    but OMG that was a funny comparison @fo!!!
