Essex Realty Group closed the sale of an eight-unit apartment building in Woodlawn, a Chicago neighborhood that is trending upward

Apartments Fetch Buyer in Upward-Trending Woodlawn

Essex Realty Group, Inc. recently facilitated the sale of 1501 E. 66th Pl., an eight-unit apartment building located in the Woodlawn neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. It sold for $1,160,000 at a cap rate of 8.06%. 

The property is comprised of four three-bedroom/one-bath and four three-bedroom/two-bath apartment units. Because the building was initially intended for condominiums, the apartments feature high-end finishes and in-unit laundry accessibility. 

“Our team has been tracking the progress of this as well as other developments surrounding Woodlawn,” said Essex director Brian Mond. “There is no doubt that this area is trending upwards as a place to both invest in and reside. Both local and out of state multifamily investment groups have caught onto this hot neighborhood.” 

He added, “This was a unique opportunity due to the location of the building, quality of construction and historic grandeur.” Mond represented both buyer and seller.
