Essex Realty Group, Inc. is pleased to announce the sale of 1019 Dempster Street, located in Evanston, Illinois. The building is a classic center entrance 6 flat, with an ideal unit mix of three large 3 bed + den/1 bath and three 3 bed + den/2 bath apartments. All of the units are extremely spacious and feature hardwood floors with carpeted bedrooms, decorative fireplaces, black or white kitchen appliances, laminate countertops, walk-in pantries, steam heating and shared laundry on-site.

In addition to these 6 units, there are 4 additional units located in the basement that are currently not being rented due to their non-conformity. There may be an opportunity for a new owner to take advantage of Evanston’s Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) ordinance to convert some of the basement units to ADU’s. The property also gives a new owner the opportunity to further improve the building and dramatically raise rents by renovating the property with new kitchens & baths, adding individual HVAC units to each apartment, and installing in-unit laundry.

Essex conducted an extensive marketing campaign resulting in 23 tours and several offers.
