New construction, renovations on West Waveland in North Center

This large and attractive home shown above and below undergoes extensive renovation on the 2100 block of West Waveland.

A few weeks back I noticed a lot of construction activity on West Waveland Avenue in North Center.  West Waveland Avenue in Chicago is mostly known as a place where ballhawks gather and home runs land in Wrigleyville.  About a mile or so west in North Center, Waveland Avenue is a street of high-end new construction homes and rehabs in two highly desirable school districts of Bell and Audubon.

2038 W Waveland shown above - and located in Bell School District - is currently under contract with an asking price of $1,895,000

2148 W Waveland was a disbanded renovation project sold for $639,500 last year (Kale Brokerage Listing) and promptly torn down to build the new house shown above.  There is no listing for the new home on the MLS, This may be a custom build for the purchaser which speaks to the tremendous investment going on these blocks.
