It doesn’t seem like all that long ago that living right next door to an “L” station was the last place you’d want to call home. While the convenience of being near public transportation is always a benefit, many assumed the noise would simply be too much of a nuisance to justify the investment.
Today, things are slightly different, and the emergence of brand new transit-oriented developments (TODs) are re-shaping how we view living spaces in the city.
Given the state of Chicago’s red hot rental market, many TODs being built in Chicago fall into the category of luxury apartment residences, but even condo buyers are starting to see a greater upside to living just a short distance away from various “L” stops.
Recognizing a shift in the market, we’ve just recently added a convenient new way to search condos for sale near CTA train stations, and although it’s still a work in progress, users can already easily search available units near Red and Brown Line stations, with search functionality near remaining CTA train lines coming soon.
So if you’re in the market for a new Chicago condo and are hoping to live near public transit, start your search right here and choose which stop you’re wanting to live nearby most!
