23 apartments and one street level retail space

Completed in 2019, the boutique property is comprised of one retail space and 23 apartment units. The building is fully leased and has reported 100% collections since March 2020.

“Not many new construction buildings close to downtown fared well in 2020, but the Old Town Collection’s strong performance in 2020 with 100% occupancy is a testament to its irreplaceable location and the great layouts it offers residents,” said Essex principal Jim Darrow. “It will attract not only local Chicago investors, but also national investors seeking higher yields than what can be found in other markets.”

Darrow and Essex principal Jordan Gottlieb are representing the seller, a local investor.
