For the last year or so, the Washington Park area in Hyde Park, home to the Olympic Stadium if Chicago succeeds in securing the 2016 Olympic Games, has been a hotbed of real estate speculation and “what ifs”.
I recently stumbled across this 6-unit luxury conversion at 840 East 52nd Street. It is literally a block away from the northern end of Washington Park, which will be the location of the stadium.
From what I can tell, 3 out of the 6 units are currently on the market.
The units have been gutted with all new kitchens and baths.
What would you pay to live near the Olympic Stadium?
Here’s the listing from the development:
