56 Huron ChicagoIf you’re in the market for a Chicago condo we’re sure that you’ll find plenty of reasons to like 56 W Huron. To make it simple, though, we’ve narrowed it down to just three great reasons.

The Chicago city housing market cooled in the first quarter of the year, with the city performing much like the suburbs. Of the city’s 77 neighborhoods, sales were down in more than half of them during the first few months of 2019.
