  1. Apart from the roof deck and huge master there’s nothing special here although it appears that it’s a decent enough place apart from the apparent partial block construction. I say it should be in the mid to upper fives at most. A bit far West for my tastes for train access and not sure I like commercial establishments on the first floor but you I guess you could do a lot worse, especially if you need an elevator. Steps to Lush is nice.

  2. This is overpriced for roscoe. 550 is more reasonable

  3. “A bit far West for my tastes for train access”

    Google sez it’s a 13 minute walk. Which means it’s more like 10 for most people.

  5. Like this place considering the trade off of SFH pricing in this area. As far as the commercial suites on ground level, that myeyedr sign is an eyesore! Would help if the three signs were all the same, muted style (the red flat signage against the brick works ok).

  6. The assessment is too low for a brick building with only six units. I doubt this building has much in the reserves. With the building approaching the 15 year mark, the likelihood of brick repair is increasing every year.

    The mortar joints will last maybe twenty to thirty years before some measure of mortar joints repair is needed. Maybe only spot tuckpointing will be needed for a well built building. In any case, about 1/30th of the estimated cost should go into the reserves every year for this maintenance. I doubt that is happening.

  7. 13 minutes is too far. I live it and it’s too far.

  8. And if the reserves are low then there will eventually be a big hit for elevator work.

  9. “13 minutes is too far. I live it and it’s too far.”

  10. Sonies you’re a more patient man than me, bc in the wintertime just the WAIT for the brownline kills me. Can’t imagine adding 10 minute walk each way. That would slay Me.

    Although, I’m super out of shape.

  11. What wait? The train comes almost every five minutes during the morning commute?

  12. If you like this area, you could do worse. I think the assessments are fine. Besides brick and elevator maintenance, what else is there really. It’s not a highrise where you need huge reserves.

  13. “What wait? The train comes almost every five minutes during the morning commute?”

    I work a lot of 10-8 and 3-11 shifts, unfortunately.

  14. I was about to say, at the Chicago stop during rush hour there’s a train almost every minute! (if you can take the brown or purple)
