THE SENG, AN ALL AFFORDABLE BUILDING, BRINGS 34 CONDOS TO NEAR NORTH SIDE
A building with two- to four-bedroom condos for income-restricted buyers in Lincoln Park has just opened.
The Seng, 869 W. Blackhawk St., has 34 condos with prices starting at $285,000, according to Structured Development, the firm behind the building. It’s the first all-affordable condo building of its size in Chicago, its developer said.
“The Seng is an example of the city’s leadership in addressing a broad range of affordable and workforce housing needs, including a lack of quality, entry-level homes for those who would otherwise be priced out of many neighborhoods,” said Mike Drew, co-founding principal of Structured Development.
The Seng is designed by GREC Architects to have family-friendly floor plans with large windows offering lots of natural light, according to Structured Development. Condos have 9-foot ceilings and modern finishes, including GE stainless steel appliances, Kohler chrome faucets, quartzite counters and two-tone cabinetry in the kitchens. Amenities include a shared rooftop terrace, bike storage and a fitness center with treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical equipment and weights, according to Structured Development.
