Video from The Ledge at the Willis Tower

The below video shows the view from 1,000 feet above Chicago’s streets. All that separates visitors from the forces of gravity is an inch and a half of glass. But it’s a strong inch and a half: each ledge supports up to 10,000 pounds, or roughly 43 Jay Cutlers.

If you’ve been considering a move to Chicago, Eastgate Village has beautiful condominium and townhomes just for you! Mere steps from Soldier Field and minutes from The Ledge and all the other things that make Chicago great, it’s the perfect place to set up shop in your very own home.

Wednesday, September 2nd – America: All Better!

New West and Near West Side Highlighted in Sun Times

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, “urban pioneers searching for a new and upcoming neighborhood to settle might want to consider Tri-Taylor West on the Near West Side. The emerging neighborhood of modest Italianate brick row houses and small, single-family homes, worker cottages and modest two-flats is bounded roughly by I-290, Western, Ogden and Kedzie.”

The community is seeing above-average growth because of the proximity it has to the Illinois Medical District, which provides a painless commute.

“The Tri-Taylor West neighborhood is a hidden jewel,” said Nita Snider, a real estate agent with New West Realty, a firm specializing in properties on the Near West Side and other underserved communities. “The Illinois Medical Center District is the largest in the world. About 50,000 people come here every day to serve or be served. So, we’re seeing a lot of workers buying in the area.”

To read the full Sun-Times piece, click here. If you’re looking in Chicago for a new home, Eastgate Village is right up your alley. It’s located in the heart of the city and offers a selection of beautiful condominiums and townhomes at the right prices. Click here for more information or to schedule an appointment!

“Single-family housing starts posted a 1.7 percent gain to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 490,000 units in July, while single-family permits registered a 5.8 percent gain to 458,000 units. Both of these were the highest levels registered since October of 2008. Meanwhile, multifamily starts tied a record low set in April of this year, falling 13.3 percent to a 91,000-unit rate.
