Property Highlights

  • 45,000 SF brick office building with raised basement. The land parcel measuring 9,902 SF has extraordinary visibility and tremendous accessibility in an established, desirable, affluent community 
  • Prime development or redevelopment site zoned as DX-12 
  • One block east of Chicago’s renowned Michigan Avenue 
  • A modification in zoning to allow for additional density will enhance the value of the investment and offer diversification in ultimate uses 
  • Site ideal for multi-family, condominium, or hotel development 

The feasibility of new apartments on the North St Clair Street and East Grand Avenue site is extremely sound. Historically low vacancy rates and an area workforce of more than 100,000 support apartment or condo development.

The Property could also support a hotel or incorporate one as part of a mixed-use development. The superior location, within the immediate vicinity of the North Michigan Avenue shopping district, has high visibility and an excellent 98 out of 100 walk score, would all play a significant role in the success of a hotel on the Property.
