  1. Direct access to the food court taco bell?

  2. Please tell me you are correct with the 2002 sale price of $580K and that the data on redfin ($850K) is wrong.

    Doesn’t seem like a bad deal at all. And if you have gigantic furniture from Restoration Hardware, it will all fit. The AV and taxes also seem low…those have been managed well.

  3. It’s weird there are no pictures of the bathrooms. Assuming they must be hideous in which explains the pricing. Depending on how hideous I would rescind my comment that this is a good deal.

  5. This is a desirable location for a pied a terre which is what I believe this unit is…….

    The data on Redfin is wrong.

  7. “Direct access to the food court taco bell?”

    Didn’t this entire mall shut down years ago? I think the only things still in there are the Saks and then the first floor, street level stuff. I don’t know what is happening with the other floors now. Offices, perhaps?

  8. Isn’t in Realtor 101 to get rid of all the crap for the photos? Just move things out for photos. I don’t understand what goes with people. I thought that mall closed too. It was a super weak mall. You know things are going south when an Irish gift store is the most interesting shop, which it was.

  9. “I thought that mall closed too. It was a super weak mall.”

    They found people didn’t walk in off of Michigan Avenue. The urban mall with all those floors like that was a 1990s creation which died pretty quickly.

    Water Tower nearly died too but they managed to get some decent stores in there and revive it in recent years.

  11. Unless they are doing something an keeping it quiet, there hasn’t been anything going on recently with the vacant space–most recent relevant thing I could find is 3+ years old:

    And I think they missed the boat on that, unless it’s already under construction.

    It was cheap! The Loyola students hang out at the Chick-fil-a now.
