Alapash and District have moved their attractive home goods stores to Damen. One Key Yoga
Groundswell Coffee Roaster and the greatly anticipated Ampersand Wine Bar all inhabit the smart street front spaces. Long time retail has been anchored by the CVS (in a nice condo building) on Lawrence and Damen. Private offices, Mee Dee Thai Cafe and local hair salons fill out the stretch I've lived near for almost 15 years.
Condo Sales on 4800 N Damen
The block is full of mostly newer build condos, mixed use commercial and a few existing residential two flats. There have been 22 closed condo units on the 4800 block of North Damen over the past 12 months. The median price of a condo on this stretch is a hefty $499,000 (typically a three bedrooms home with garage parking). The price reflects the new construction that has hit the market and sold over the last 12 months. A 3 bedrooms new construction duplex down at 4836 N Damen recently closed for $730,000.
