A slew of new luxury condos are well on the way to the West Loop. The new CA Washington development from Belgravia Group has received the official go-ahead from the city to complete the major buildout of the six-story, 69-unit project for 27 N. Aberdeen. We spotted demolition crews back in June clearing the auto garage on the site to make way for the future luxury condo development, but now construction crews will take over the project.


According to Belgravia, the development will feature only 2,000-square-foot three-bedroom, three bathroom units which will start over the $800,000 range. The units will be decked out with higher-end finishes and each will include private elevator access and private balconies. The development has been designed by

To put the best face on a listing and appeal to buyers who follow feng shui principles, keep these tips in mind..

1. Pay special attention to the front door, which is considered the “mouth of chi” (chi is the “life force” of all things) and one of the most powerful aspects of the entire property. Abundance, blessings, opportunities, and good fortune enter through the front door. It’s also the first impression buyers have of how well the sellers have taken care of the rest of the property. Make sure the area around the front door is swept clean, free of cobwebs and clutter. Make sure all lighting is straight and properly hung. Better yet, light the path leading up to the front door to create an inviting atmosphere.

2. Chi energy can be flushed

Located in the near north community neighborhood of Chicago, Noble Square, is bordered by the Kennedy Expressway on the east, Ashland Avenue on the west, Grand Avenue on the south, and Division St to the North. Some neighbors that I talk to say that Noble Square has an old school urban feel to it, but is often overshadowed by Wicker Park and Humboldt Park.

 

The median home value in Noble Square is $329,000. Noble Square home values have gone up 3.3% over the past year. Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Noble Square 4.7 homes are foreclosed (per 10,000). This is greater than the national value of 2.9

Brief Introduction to Highlands of Edgewater. Some call it Northwest Edgewater. Whatever you may call it, the area has a long and fascinating history, which you can see in the many housing types. These include the 1890s Queen Annes and the 1950s townhomes, the Kransz-Weber homes on Granville and the bungalows on Paulina and Hermitage, the early cottages on Paulina to the two-flats sprinkled throughout the area. The Highlands of Edgewater also has what must be considered Edgewater’s most beautiful court yard building – the Patio Apartments, which are really two buildings facing each other across a court yard that extend between two streets, Granville and Thome. The history of Chicago housing is here to observe just by walking along the streets.
