Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

i followed up and found out the corporate structure has changed — units at 909 walnut are rent only now, except for the units that have already been purchased as condos.

Re: OFFICIAL - East9 (former Pickwick Plaza)

sure, but streetcar access isn't the most salient consideration for everyone looking to move downtown. i think that's especially true now, before any expansion of the streetcar south of union station occurs. if you aren't willing or able to go completely car-less, the current iteration of the street...

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

also, if the data points i've heard are representative, the HOA fees are something like 60%—or more—of the monthly rental payment for the same unit. which makes buying hard to justify even if there is some kind of long term renters credit.

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

the website had information regarding buying units as recently as ~6 months ago. they redid their website this winter and that information appears to be gone. i also know of at least one inquiry into purchasing a unit around summer 2016, and 909's office provided information. the putative buyers cho...

Re: New Convention Hotel

probably all ladies. here is a 1914 newspaper from chicago hinting at some of the issues relating to these entrances — pretty hard to read even zoomed in, but appears to be a marketing ploy that at least in some instances may have been used in a misleading (sinister?) way http://archives.chicagotrib...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

business expense theory makes a ton of sense. and if that's the intended/expected use, that's pretty cool. on the hybrid apartment/hotel issue — interesting question. some back of the napkin math makes it look like you would have to hit something like 40-60% occupancy throughout a year depending on ...

right, listed those as two different people — [kelce] & [guy on top of WST].

i'll throw in the current owners of 909 walnut's penthouse in the mix, so now we're all the way up to three.
