You’ll Be “Peerless” in This New Construction 3-Bedroom in West Lakeview: 3026 N. Lincoln

3026 n lincoln

This 3-bedroom in The Peerless at 3026 N. Lincoln in West Lakeview came on the market in February 2017.

This is a new construction 9-unit brick and steel building with an elevator and garage parking.

All of the units in the building are 3-bedrooms, which is somewhat rare for Lakeview, but this was a massive lot so a little bit different type of building could be built.

There are 10 foot ceilings and a recessed balcony that faces Lincoln.

The listing says there is poured concrete between floors (presumably for soundproofing).

There are 4 inch white oak hardwood floors throughout.

The finishes are upscale and modern.

The kitchens have Scavolini cabinets, Subzero, Wolf, Asko appliances and Graff faucets along with quartz counter tops.

The master bathroom has a walk-in shower and heated floors.

Rare 2-car heated attached garage is included.

5 out of the 9 units are already sold.

The listing says it’s in the Burley school district.

Is this a good townhouse alternative for families?

Ted Nash at Jameson Sotheby’s has the listing. See the pictures here.

Or go to the Open House on Sunday, May 21 from 2-4 PM.

  1. There are so many new condos on Lincoln. No. This is not a good townhouse alternative for a family. Sure, it’s technically three bedrooms, but the common living space lives like any one bedroom or two bedroom condo. I think most families want three bedrooms plus a viable “bonus” living space for a playroom.

  3. Well the peerless I think is in reference to the peerless rug and peerless ceramics across the street, probably owned by the same guy

    I know of a few business owners that have land in prime locations building condos on their parking lots

    its getting HOT!

  4. Do families with young children actually live in these types of condos?

  7. You can easily get the same space on Lincoln buying a few year old place for 150K or more less money, this seems like an excessive premium for new construction. The two car parking and roof deck may be hard to replicate though.

  8. “Do families with young children actually live in these types of condos?”

    Yes, my wife and I have a 2 year old and we live in a 3 bedroom in LP that has similar layout.
    My neighbor has two kids and seem to like the setup as well.
    I think the mentally is completely different for some of the young families today, it’s more like how can I adapt to make this work.

  10. Why wouldn’t you live here with a child? A three bedroom with 2 garage spaces is perfect for a one and done couple. Kids don’t need playrooms if they have bedrooms. I wouldn’t want Lincoln Avenue myself, but if that doesn’t bother you, then this seems fine.

  11. “I might get this ask in prime lincoln park..but here? no. It’s about 100k over priced.”

    Lakeview prices are at all time highs. In Lincoln Park, you’d be paying close to a million for this.

  12. I don’t think so Sabrina. Even in LP, I think a million bucks buys more than 1700 square feet.

  13. There is a light pole with the light right outside of the window of this unit. You’d have to keep your curtains closed in the evenings just to avoid seeing that horrible orange glow. I wonder if the building could petition to have the light pole moved. I’m guessing the developers are banking on no one noticing.

  14. “Kids don’t need playrooms if they have bedrooms.”

    That is so very wrong. Small kids need to be watched. All the time. In the case of this condo, the living room would be used as the playroom. This is so mom/dad/nanny can put away groceries, cook, and do dishes while keeping an eye on the kid playing in the living room.

    Any living room furniture that would not survive contact with a child, like what is shown on these photos, would have to be removed.
