Another contemporary new house on West Winona in Lincoln Square

This looks like another contemporary, or modern, new build on the 2600 block of West Winona in Ravenswood/ Lincoln Square.  I took this shot late last week on my run over to the Northeastern Illinois University gym.

We've mentioned in the past that these couple blocks of Winona (just west of Western Avenue in Lincoln Square) are dotted with contemporary and modern new houses.  There are a handful traditional looking new construction houses as well.  The east-west blocks just east of Western Avenue (Winona, Carmen, Winnemac, Argyle, Ainslie etc) have very few new construction homes in comparison.

This modern home at 2540 W Winona with lower level garage just closed for $695,000 this year.
Land prices can be good in these "just off the path" locations. This location is near great amenities such as "downtown" Lincoln Square just to the south and lots of practical stores (Dominicks, Home Depot etc) and highway access just to the north.  Sometimes we can find little blocks of opportunity to build new and/or modern.
