Luxury Homes Chicago ILThe year isn’t even over yet, but already 2021 has been a record year when it comes to Chicago’s luxury housing market. Over the first 10 months of the year, 75 homes sold for at least $4 million.

That’s slightly more than the 2018 record of 73 luxury home sales and significantly more than the 50 or 60 that sold in years leading up to 2018. Agents credit the boost, in part, to low mortgage rates and a booming stock market.

Without any zoning changes, the lot could have resulted in a more than 15,000 square foot home on Howe Street. The previous owner paid nearly $6 million for the lot, then demolished its two buildings in 2020.

A year later, the lot was back on the market and ready for a new buyer once again. The new plan is to turn the lot into a six-unit condo building.

New Construction Luxury Homes in LakeviewA former industrial site in Lakeview will soon be transformed into luxury homes. For around 40 years, the site served as home to Craftsman Plating & Tinning.

A couple of years ago, a developer came in with plans to construct 28 new townhomes on the site. After that plan fell apart, a city committee voted to downsize the property for a dozen single-family homes.

A new developer recently purchased the property with plans to construct two different models of homes. Each home will be around 4,200 to 5,000 square feet in size.
