“Lincoln Square is the Bucktown of this decade,” says the real-estate agent and developer Rich Aronson. Homebuyers are eager to settle in the North Side neighborhood, and developers are rushing in to put up houses and condos, sparking a building boom: at the moment, there are at least a dozen buildings under way within a few blocks of Lincoln and Lawrence avenues.
Aronson’s Camelot Realty is marketing Washtenaw on the Park, a four-story elevator building at 4755 North Washtenaw Avenue. Each of the 27 units has 11-foot-high ceilings, attractive kitchens, Brazilian cherry floors, large baseboards and crown moldings, and big transom windows for extra natural light. Prices start at $254,900 for a 794-square-foot one-bedroom unit and go up to $414,900 for a 1,230-square-foot unit with two bedrooms. Each unit comes with a parking space; the spaces for the one-bedroom units are outside, and the two-bedrooms’ spaces are indoors. At press time, seven units had been sold. Aronson expected the building to be ready for its new residents by June 15th.
