Chicago’s high-end, new construction condo market continues to propel an other sluggish luxury market.
Last week’s top five closed residential sales were all for Downtown condos. The results were not unlike the first week in August, when only one single-family home — a Lakeview mansion — made it on the top five priciest sales list.
Combined, last week’s top five sales traded for more than $13.5 million, less than the combined $14.6 million spent on the previous week’s top deals.
The new construction Renelle on the River from Belgravia Group commanded the two priciest sales of last week, with the two units trading for more than $5.8 million. Renelle on the River also had the sixth and seventh priciest sales of last week.
Like the previous week, Related Midwest’s One Bennett Park and Sulo Development’s Hayden West Loop also notched pricey sales.
