Why You Should Consider Downsizing Your HomeRead More
The glass front and curved façade at 30 W Oak Street condos for sale is often labeled as the most unique building in Chicago's striking Gold Coast neighborhood. While not uncommon to find vintage and classic architecture in the surrounding areas of Oak Street, this modern design offers a somewhat new flavor in one of Chicago's oldest neighborhoods. Situated at the corner of Dearborn and Oak Street, each of the 45 glass-front condominiums has unmatchable south-facing views of beautiful downtown Chicago.
Construction on 30 W Oak condos was finished in early 2007. Upon completion, approximately 75% of the condos had pre-sold, demonstrating its popularity among Chicagoans and the appreciation of a new theme around the Gold Coast neighborhood. The latest collaboration by Smithfield Properties and Booth Hansen Architects vary from two- to four-bedroom condos with a range of 2.5 to 4.5 bathrooms.
Amenities at 30 W Oak include 24-hour door staff, a modernized fitness center, floor-to-ceiling windows which provide ample natural light and a heated indoor parking garage. Perhaps the greatest aspect of the building is the spectacular 18 x 24-foot private terrace that protrudes out to the east or west of each condo. This unlikely addition is made possible due to most of 30 W Oak having only 2 condominiums per floor, which also allows for more privacy for each particular homeowner — something not seen often in a 24-story building in the heart of Chicago. Other interior features consist of granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and marble-tiled baths with matching marble counters. The intentional openness of the building and exposure of the inner-skeleton additionally gives these condominiums a modern, loft-like feel-also distinctive from typical Gold Coast real estate.
Living at Dearborn and Oak Street offers some of the best outdoor living opportunities Chicago residences have to offer. Only a block away from Washington Square Park and walking distance to Oak Street Beach and the bike and walking paths along Lake Shore Drive, 30 W Oak is the perfect location for dog owners and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Also sharing the same block is Morton's the Steakhouse and various other fine dining restaurants and shopping boutiques such as BCBG MAXAZRIA and Jimmy Choo. It's a rarity for these condominiums to turn-over as only a couple re-sales have popped onto the market in the last year. In other words, buyers can certainly expect to see appreciation of the property hold, which should be an added incentive to consider 30 W Oak as your next home.
