Essex Realty has listed 632-640 Hinman Ave., a deconverted condominium property in Evanston, IL

Deconverted Condos Listed in Evanston 

Essex Realty Group is marketing 632-640 Hinman Ave., a 32-unit courtyard apartment building in Evanston, IL. The property is listed for $11.5 million. 

An Essex Realty team of Doug Imber, Kate Varde, Jaimie Steinher, Rick Ofman, and Dan Shepherd is marketing 632-640 Hinman, which is comprised of a mix of two- and three-bedroom floorplans, with select units offering duplex-style layouts. The property was fully renovated and converted to condominiums approximately 12 years ago. It has subsequently been deconverted. 

Located on a tree-lined street, the property benefits from the neighborhood’s low vacancy rates, and close proximity to public transportation, the city of Chicago and the lakefront. An investor has the opportunity to purchase a rarely available courtyard building that has been diligently maintained, according to Essex Realty.
