This 3-bedroom at 2555 W. Leland in the Ravenswood Gardens neighborhood of Lincoln Square came on the market at the end of June.
This is a 16-unit building that was built in 2004 when Lincoln Square was seeing a lot of development.
It has 11 foot ceilings, crown moldings and hardwood floors in the main living areas.
The kitchen has maple cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
The building is built on an angle property so the unit has some unique angles as well.
It shares a triangle patio with one other unit.
The unit has central air, washer/dryer in the unit and garage parking, which looks to be $10,000 extra.
The Rockwell brown line stop is just a half a block away. The restaurants of Lincoln Square are also just about 5 to 6 blocks to the east.
Lincoln Square was considered the hottest neighborhood in the city before the bust with home values up well over 100%.
A decade ago, it seemed that every 20-something was moving to Lincoln Square.
But since the bust, the energy, and new construction, has shifted to the West Town neighborhoods of Ukrainian Village, and Wicker Park, as well as to Logan Square.
Has Lincoln Square lost its edge?
