While several downtown neighborhoods like River North, Printer’s Row, and the West Loop are well-known for their residential loft conversions, buyers can also find some pretty unique loft opportunities up on Chicago’s north side as well. And while options may be a little more scattered throughout the area, here are three great buildings to consider if you won’t settle for anything less than a sweet new loft just outside of downtown.
Lofts at 1800
If you’re already familiar with The Lofts at 1800, you might agree that’s it’s arguably one of the most desirable loft conversions on the north side of town. Interior finishes are highly upgraded, and the wide range of floor plans ensures plenty of different options at various price ranges.
1000 W. Leland
If you’re looking for a great value, start your search at 1000 W. Leland. Lofts here have more of a modern look and feel, and most units feature huge concrete ceilings, floor to ceiling glass, and insane views of the lake. And prices don’t break the bank either, which might just be the building’s best characteristic.
Pencil Factory Lofts
The Pencil Factory Lofts, located in the heart of Chicago’s Roscoe Village neighborhood, are everything a loft conversion should be. High timber ceilings, huge open floor plans, plenty of exposed brick and concrete, and oversized industrial windows are just some of the finishes that make this building desirable, and it’s quiet location that just steps from all the Roscoe Street shopping and dining also make this one of the north side’s top place for Chicago loft buyers to consider.
