Looking for an Organic Vegetable Garden? A 2-Bedroom in the South Loop: 1322 S. Wabash

1322 s wabash

This 2-bedroom in the Filmworks Lofts at 1322 S. Wabash in the South Loop just came on the market.

If it seems familiar to some of you, that’s because this “ONCE IN A LIFETIME LIVE/WORK OPPORTUNITY” was last on the market just 20 months, in 2014.

It’s on the first floor of this building but that gives it a rare 1350 square foot, enclosed, landscaped garden.

The listing says it has a deck, fountain, natural blue stone patio and an organic raised bed veggie garden.

The loft itself has exposed brick and concrete ceilings.

The kitchen has custom wood cabinets and stainless steel Bosch appliances.

The listing says there’s a new central air and GFA furnace.

It has in-unit washer/dryer and parking is included.

This loft has come on the market for 29.4% more than it sold for just 20 months ago, at $549,900.

Will it get the premium?

Yvonne Carns at @Properties has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. If Charlie Brown had a Organic Raised Bed Garden, this would be it

    The Architect that designed this should hang their head in shame

  2. That’s some fairly nice furniture in an otherwise meh loft, the outdoor space is nice but does it even get any sun? It looks like that space is wedged on the NW side of the building…

  5. “you need some new material”

    Might have happened if the Kickstarter had been funded.

  8. Trivia time – The “Filmworks” company was one of several movie-related businesses that flourished in the South Loop until the 1990’s or so. This company made and distributed “trailers” that were part of the pre-show. They were usually ads for local businesses or non-profit organizations. If you attended a local movie theatre in the 1990’s you may remember the Variety Club Children’s Charities fund-raiser ads featuring local DJ Robert Murphy. They were produced by Filmworks, headed by a guy named Bernie Mac (not the late comedian).
