Second floor common outdoor deck. Those tables are great for wine with friends.
One building I always go back to is 1020 South Wabash, a 49 unit long time established loft conversion. Technically, this is in the official Loop designated community area, but it's part of the "South Loop neighborhood" to most. Other than elevator and a couple rooftop deck areas, the building does not offer flashy amenities. However, the units tend to be larger than the competition for the asking and closing prices. Many have pretty good views, a gritty New York style open loft feel, garage parking and a terrific location north of Roosevelt that's close to the CTA Red Line. The units are very different, but you can generally get 1500-1600 sq feet for around $330K-$400K with attached garage parking included and a $400 a month assessment.
