As far as large loft condo buildings go, 1645 W School is pretty a pretty solid value in West Lakeview. It's a well maintained building, established condo association and relatively low turn-over in units sold... especially the last year. Which, the latter could be said for many buildings last year! Here are a couple view from the eastern most roof deck (there are two roof decks).
At the moment, there is only two units for sale; a one bedroom with garage parking included for $287,500 and a two bedroom unit with two car garage parking for $378,000. It's an elevator building with heated garage, balconies and the aforementioned two rooftop decks. The location is really terrific. Just to name a few things within a block or two: the Paulina Brown Line stop, Whole Foods, Jewel Food Store, the Lincoln/Belmont YMCA, X-Sport Fitness, and about a dozen food and drink establishments.

I think this is a great building for someone who wants a convenient, maintenance free lifestyle. The units under $400,000 are not huge, but they are comfortable and quiet.
Anyone else like this building and neighborhood?
