^ Every building name is stupid. I’ve never referred to any place that I’ve lived by the building name (and I’ve lived in a few places with them), only the address.

It's interesting that it's half studios (160 to be exact) and they start at $1500/mo. That's super affordable for the location.

$1500 for 389 sqft is insane! My friend lived in the south loop a few blocks south of there for a couple of years and hated it, he said it was boring and there's not alot of bars or restaurants around there. We usually would go to Chinatown or Pilsen. Now he's moved to Bridgeport and it's alot cheaper, bigger, and a more interesting neighborhood.

for brand new construction, yes.

for a 100 year old building, no.

^ The question isn't if the pricing was normal or not, it was if it was "super affordable."

There are numerous comps in the area where you can get more for less (new/ish construction included). Pricing looks pretty typical, but super affordable it is definitely not.

Yes, but if you're in marketing, you don't really have a choice. Working memory doesn't perform as well with combinations of numerical strings and street names as it does with something like "Eleven40", as prosaic and cheesy as it is. (Strength of memory is correlated with emotion, so maybe the more cringe-worthy the better.)

^^ Not in a bad way but it reminds me of something clutched in your tongs at a panaderia. I'm thinking one of those fancy conchas with the chocolate sugar crust on top.

Skyscrapers that remind me to go get Mexican bakery items. Cool.

Pretty sure that's the elevator shaft. There are still south facing windows but most of them on the lower floors stare right into the blank wall of Walton on the Park. This site was supposed to host a twin or mirror image to that building but 2008 happened.

The most desirable views (if you're high enough) are of the lake, which is mostly to the north and east. The south view is blocked on most of the floors by Walton on the Park.
