The building at 1791 West Howard, which was once an ornate 1920s medical office building, is being developed into Renaissance Lofts, a 37-loft condominium in Rogers Park. The one- to two-bedroom lofts will range in size from 950 to 1,250 square feet and will feature one to two bathrooms.
The historic grand lobby entrance, featuring duel elevators and gold finishes, was what inspired the developers at The Kopley Group to pursue the project. The developer is so confident that buyers will also appreciate the building that they are offering a two-year money back guarantee. The company will buy back lofts sold now, at the price buyers paid for them, if the new owners are not completely satisfied.
Ranging in price from $186,000 to $299,000, the lofts will feature hardwood floors in the main living areas, oversized energy-efficient windows and 10- to 12-foot ceilings. There will be designer lighting throughout and some of the lofts will have either a private balcony or terrace.
The kitchens at Renaissance Lofts will feature 42-inch cabinets, granite countertops and a stainless steel undermount sink. The stainless steel appliance package includes a refrigerator, a multi-cycle dishwasher, a gas range, an oven and a microwave. The bathrooms will have Moen fixtures, cultured marble countertops with an integral bowl and sconce-style vanity lighting. Some bathrooms will also include a soaking tub.
Renaissance Lofts will have a phone-operated intercom and lobby door and also large secured storage lockers. The roof top deck will give residents views of Chicago’s skyline, downtown Evanston and Lake Michigan.
As an added incentive, buyers will also receive a brand-new Vespa scooter. The exclusive listing agent for Renaissance Lofts is Kopley Partners.
