This 2-bedroom brick and concrete loft in the Donohue Annex at 727 S. Dearborn in Printers Row came on the market in April 2014.
We’ve chattered about the Annex several times before. It’s the southern most part of the Donohue loft building.
Built in 1883, the Annex has 10.5 foot concrete ceilings (not timber like in the other part of the Donohue) and it still has one of the original building elevators.
The Donohue was one of the first original loft conversion condo buildings in the city.
This unit is a massive 3500 square foot southwest corner unit with city views.
It has floor to ceiling windows and a wide open living/dining and kitchen space.
The kitchen has terracotta floors with a large kitchen island and wine fridge. It has Subzero appliances.
There’s a circular library and one of the bathrooms has a claw foot tub (check out the pictures.)
It is a live/work space so there are some at-home businesses in the building as well as just some businesses (which is why there are desks in the pictures with this unit.)
There’s a washer/dryer hook-up in the unit, central air but no parking. There is leased parking nearby or some buy parking in the Plymouth building across the street.
The listing says it’s in the South Loop Elementary school district.
Since April, it has reduced $46,000 to $849,000.
Who has the vision to turn this loft into their dream home?
Jennifer Ames at Coldwell Banker has the listing. See the pictures here.
