You Can Still Get a 3-Bedroom in River North for Under $800K: 33 W. Huron


This 3-bedroom at 33 W. Huron in River North came on the market in early September 2016.

Built in 1997, this midrise building is across from the Whole Foods and has 67 units.

It is famous for having low assessments because there are absolutely no amenities: no gym, no doorman, no pool.

The listing for this unit says it has been “fully renovated.”

The kitchen has dark cabinets, quartz counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

There are hardwood floors throughout.

It has a north facing balcony.

It has central air, washer/dryer in the unit and 1-car parking is included.

The unit originally came on the market at $800,000 but has been reduced to $770,000.

Unit #709, which is the same floor plan and exposure but three floors higher, is under contract at $695,000, and includes 2 parking spots, but the unit has not been renovated.

Is this a deal for a 3-bedroom in the heart of River North?

Or do midrise buildings just not command high prices?

Robert Picciariello at Prello Realty has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. Yawn. Such a boring unit…

    Am I the only one who is annoyed by the fad where people who either paint or place letters on their walls? It started with baby names and now people place the word “eat” in their kitchen or “family” in their living room. I would love to go into one of those houses and exchange the letters for, “D…. bag.”

  2. “for under 800k.”

    That made me laugh pretty abruptly, Sabrina. Well done.

    I like the openness of the kitchen/living room but hate that all 3 bedrooms are right next to each other, and that the smallest room is the one with the balcony. If I were an owner here –without plans to ever rent it out — I’d knock out the 3rd bedroom for an even bigger entertainment space that would have easier access to the balcony.

    Not a fan of this particular part of River North either, too much tourist spillover from Streeterville/Mag Mile. West of Orleans and east of Halsted/River West boundary is ideal in my opinion, but to each their own.

  3. “Unit #709, which is the same floor plan and exposure but three floors higher, is under contract at $695,000”

    by looking at the floor plans of the 2 units, they appear to be slightly different. master suite looks like a different layout and the biggest benefit of #709 is that the balcony is off the master. room dimension are all different as well.

  5. No. Also, 2nd and third bedroom are narrow narrow narrow. This is really begging to be a two-bed.

  7. Nothing says “upscale home” like that living-room view into the structured parking garage across the street.
