Garden Unit Condos in ChicagoIf you’re in the market for a new condo you may want to consider a garden unit. That’s because there are plenty of pros when it comes to buying a garden unit condo.

To begin with, a garden unit is located on the ground floor or slightly below street level, with easy access to a backyard garden or patio. They sometimes also offer a small front porch.

The accessibility also means you won’t have to contend with stairs. Whether stocking up on weekly groceries or more easily moving in furniture, a garden unit is the way to go.

This is ideal, too, if you have a pet that needs to go for daily walks. If you work untraditional hours, you won’t have to worry about disturbing others when you leave and return home.

Lakeview Chicago Apartment DevelopmentA proposed seven-story apartment development moves closer to reality in Lakeview. The Chicago Plan Commission recently gave the go-ahead to bring around 200 rentals and nearly 100 parking spaces to the site of a now closed Treasure Island grocery store on N Broadway.

The revised proposal is significantly smaller than the original eight-story proposal unveiled to neighbors last summer for the Optima Lakeview development. That design included around 250 apartments with an all-glass façade.

Some surrounding neighbors had previously complained about the original design’s density and height. Among other things, the newly proposed design is a mixture of glass and brick with some in-set balconies.

Now that the revised project has approval from the Plan
