Handful of condo sales on North Clark Street in Lincoln Park

This vintage building at 2141 N Clark St Chicago, Illinois 60614 (in the center the withe the shingled "gable" top floor) has always caught my eye on one of my favorite strips of North Clark Street. Unit 3, a top floor duplex-up, recently sold for $620,000. Photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty
I spend a lot of time traveling, eating and working along North Clark Street in Chicago. I was back on Friday well... traveling, eating and working. The stretch of North Clark Street that runs through Lincoln Park is roughly from North Avenue (1600 N) to Diversey Parkway (2800 N).  This is a great strip of small retail, restaurants, bars, services, schools and commercial buildings near the lake also sports attractive architecture including classic row houses.

In the last 12 months only 20 condo sales have been recorded from 1600 North Clark to 2800 North Clark.  The median price of a condo sale (attached unit) is only $260,000.  This reflects the high-rise unit sales on the lower-end and the fact no historic row houses on Clark sold over that period.

The highest sale is at the Eugenie Terrace town house community at 1740 N Clark St Unit 1740, Chicago, Illinois 60614 for $910,000. The lowest sale is $77,000 for a studio apartment at 1850 N Clark St Unit 2706, Chicago, Illinois 60614.

Eleven of the sales are at the 1850 N Clark high-rise (280 units). Four sales are at 1920 N Clark Street mid-rise (43 units).  Five sales are in smaller condo buildings of less than 8 units and one is a town house.
