Peak Properties Adds Gold Coast Deconversion to Management Roster
Peak Properties has added to its roster of high-rise management projects with a new deconversion in at 1211 N. LaSalle in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood.
The 19-story brick building built in 1929 as a hotel was converted to condos in 2006. Features include 68 residential units and ground-floor retail. With its Gold Coast location, the ground floor will be converted to high level amenity spaces and the apartments will keep their vintage feel with state-of-the-art upgrades.
“The location speaks for itself, and the rental market is ripe for the transition of a classic building into a new ‘boutique, vintage, and hip’ property,” said Mike Zucker, managing partner of Peak Properties. “This will be a special building once done.”
