Oakwood Shores, a new Chicago lakefront neighborhood, is five minutes from downtown, surrounded by greenery, positioned between the South Loop and Hyde Park and centrally located in between proposed Olympic venues. There are over 20 different floor plans, from single-family homes and townhomes to rowhomes and condominiums. Pricing ranges from the $180,000s to the $700,000s.
The kitchens in each home feature stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and Premier cabinetry with brushed chrome pulls and track lighting. There is also a double-bowl stainless steel sink, a Grohe faucet with a pull-out spray and a garbage disposal.
The bathrooms have Grohe plumbing fixtures, Premier cabinetry, Kohler sinks and toilets and theatre lighting. The master bathroom has a natural stone tile floor and shower surround. There are marble vanity tops, a 6-foot soaking tub and a separate shower.
The homes’ interior features include stained oak hardwood floors on the first floor and plush carpeting on the stairs, upstairs hallway and bedrooms. Homes have a fireplace, and the master bedroom, family and living rooms are cable ready.
Single-family homes and rowhomes come with a one- or two-car garage and a private fenced-in backyard.
With more than 3,000 homes to be built, Oakwood Shores plans to not just build new construction but to revitalize a diverse multi-generational community and add new community resources and commercial space. Oakwood Shores sits in the center of the historic Bronzeville community. The tree-lined streets are close to beaches, dining and schools.
