1210 N. Astor Condos

Constructed in the late 1800s, 1210 N Astor provides the appeal of living in an historic building, while at the same time offering close proximity to some of Chicago’s most famous attractions.  With just 14 condominium homes spread across seven stories, 1210 N Astor is only blocks away from the Lakefront with its 18-mile trail, as well as the Magnificent Mile with its countless upscale dining and shopping locations, a grocery store, plus the subway and other public transportation options.

Constructed of limestone and brick with added upscale features and lavish design elements, the vintage building features such period additions as a birdcage elevator, plus original moldings and hardwoods, oversized 100+ year old wood doors and tall, soaring ceilings.  With many of the units remodeled in recent years, other common features of the homes include the upgraded kitchens with top-of-the-line appliances, multiple wood-burning fireplaces, and large walk-in closets.  

With expansive rooms, this Holabird & Rouche designed building offers a mix of Old World architecture, along with modern conveniences and designer finishes.  Conveniently located in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, 1210 N Astor also includes a common area for laundry, extra storage space, plus a bike room and a pet friendly environment.  Some parking is available for additional lease nearby.
