Essex Realty Group, Inc. is please to announce the sale of 938-940 W. Argyle St. (“the Property”), a center entrance six-flat located in Chicago’s vibrant Uptown neighborhood. The Property is conveniently located 0.2 miles east of the newly Argyle CTA Red Line station, less than 300 feet away from the Argyle and Sheridan CTA Bus Stop, and 0.2 miles west of Lake Michigan and the Park.
938-940 W. Argyle St. is comprised of five (5) 3Bd/1Ba units, one (1) 2Bd/1Ba unit, a 5-car garage, and a 5-car parking pad. The units feature hardwood floors, vintage details, and varying levels of kitchen and bath finishes. In addition, all units feature their own gas forced heat and soffited duct work. Ownership has recently updated the entrance hallways and the basement laundry room. Additionally, there is a partially finished basement that has plumbing and electric that used to be a non-conforming 4Bd/1Ba apartment.
The Property presents a new owner with several value-add opportunities. The units on the 2nd & 3rd floor can be renovated as they turn: a new owner may elect to add washer & dryer, new kitchens, new bathrooms, refinish the floor, and add an AC condenser to the furnace.
Additionally, the Property has a partially finished basement that encompasses the footprint of the building. There is potential to duplex both 1W & 1E into the basement and create two (2) 4Bd/2Ba duplex-down apartments.

This historic neighborhood is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and was originally developed as an affluent resort area that served as a tranquil oasis away from city life. It was a popular destination for movie stars of Chicago’s silent film era, evidenced by the numerous destinations for music and the arts. Landmarks like the Byline Aragon Ballroom, Riviera Theatre, Uptown Theatre and Green Mill Jazz Club hold deep historic, architectural and cultural significance and are still frequented today.Uptown has benefited from significant public investment in recent years that is rebuilding the area’s public transportation and major thoroughfares. The Wilson CTA Red Line station is located one block south of the Property and is currently undergoing a $203 million renovation. This multi-phase project will replace more than 2,200 feet of the century-old Red & Purple Line tracks in addition to the construction of a brand new fully-accessible station.
