Kiser Group Lists Historic Apartments in Gold Coast
Kiser Group has listed Canterbury Court Apartments, a historic, 16-story property with 172 units at 1220 N. State Pkwy. in the Gold Coast neighborhood on Chicago’s Near North Side. Principal broker Lee Kiser, director Andy Friedman and advisor Jake Parker represent the seller, with pricing subject to offer.
“Canterbury Court is a one-of-a-kind property,” said Parker. “The Gold Coast neighborhood has incredible walkability, luxury dining and retail locations, as well as the highest median household income in the city. The history and convenience of this location are appealing to investors and tenants alike.”
Built in 1928, Canterbury Court Apartments has maintained many of its original features through several renovations. On the ground floor, it houses the Zebra Lounge piano bar, which has been in operation since 1929 and holds the third-oldest liquor license in the city. The lounge operated during Prohibition as a speakeasy.
