Please Call for Sale Details

Essex Realty Group, Inc. is pleased to announce the sale of 1300 W. Hood Ave., a 12-unit corner apartment building located in the highly sought-after Edgewater Glen neighborhood of Chicago. The subject property consists of three (3) 1 Bd/1 Ba units, six (6) 2 Bd/1 Ba units, and three (3) 3 Bd/1 Ba units situated on a double-wide, corner lot with two (2) surface parking spaces. The property was under the same ownership for 20+ years, providing investors with the opportunity to acquire a rarely available asset, in an excellent location, with significant upside.

Due to the properties’ expansive interior floorplans, the purchaser is planning to extensively renovate the property by creating luxury family rentals to meet the needs of this attractive, quaint, northside pocket of Edgewater Glen. Additional dwelling units may be permitted for this project as it falls within the newly adopted ADU Pilot Program. Essex successfully generated 15 property tours and 11 offers.

The lakefront neighborhood of Edgewater is located approximately seven miles north of the Loop and is bounded by the Rogers Park community to the north, Uptown to the south, Lincoln Square to the west, and Lake Michigan to the east.
