|This is a house!
Over the past few years several city lots were purchased from (the now named) Lincoln Park 2550 development. You know, that big luxury tower at... wait for it... 2550 N Lakeview. The lots on the 400 block of West Deming and the 400 block of West Saint James Place were slated to be town houses originally. Deming is now filled with luxury single family houses developed by LG while the Saint James lots are occupied by one giant house.
The Saint James lots were purchased by a private owner to build one single family home residence. Various reports suggest the house cost roughly $22 million to build.
|I didn't get the shot but my 8 yr old walked up and looked right into the security cameras. They probably get a lot of that.
The charming blocks are dominated by row homes and small multi-unit buildings from the late 1800s. Life, as it were, near the lakefront. I think it's more vibrant and interesting to have more homes. But life goes on.
