South Loop Living at 1255 S. State #1814
The epitome of city living: when everything is at your fingertips & all with a great view.
1255 S. State #1814 is the epitome of city living for its current owner, Raj, who has been fortunate enough to call the condo home for over 10 years. Both a commuter’s dream & a haven from all of the city’s hustle & bustle, I honestly don’t think words (or the photos) do the condo justice.
To start, Raj’s morning routine includes waking up to unobstructed views of Chicago, and sometimes even a cup of coffee on his private balcony. With expansive west-facing views, he says starting the day overlooking Chicago & its neighboring skyscrapers has yet to get old.
When he’s not working or traveling, Raj also loves to entertain. The venue of his friends & family’s annual Super Bowl party and too many game nights to count, his condo is filled with countless warm memories.
What initially drove him to the area was the location. A reverse commuter & frequent flyer, being around the corner from one of Chicago’s public transportation hubs was paramount. Living at 1255 S. State has provided quick access to the Roosevelt Red, Orange & Green Line ‘L’ stops, the Roosevelt CTA bus, Metra Electric line (stopping at the University of Chicago) & the expressway (only a 10-minute drive away). And for the super-commuter, like Raj, the Orange Line stops at Midway!
Besides being a commuter’s paradise, the neighborhood restaurants & shopping are fantastic too. With Jewel next door & a Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and Mariano’s not much further, grocery shopping has been easier than ever, and on days that Raj doesn’t want to cook, he stops by the countless eateries (We just grabbed a bite to eat at Nepal House the other day!). And on mornings when he’s not reverse commuting to the Northwest suburbs for work, he’ll walk over to Yolk & enjoy a breakfast with friends or grab a quick coffee at the Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts around the corner.
Situated in the heart of South Loop, #1814 is the epitome of city living. Walk into this freshly painted 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom top-floor condo featuring west-facing views & hardwood flooring. Dine at the many neighborhood restaurants (The Chicago Firehouse Restaurant & Eleven City Diner are must-trys) or stop by the neighborhood Jewel, Mariano’s, Whole Foods or Trader Joes & enjoy cooking a meal in the spacious kitchen featuring granite counter tops & a breakfast bar. The king-sized bedroom offers brand-new carpet in addition to a walk-in closet. The fresh bathroom includes a brand-new vanity, and the condo includes an in-unit washer/dryer. Relax on the spacious, private balcony overlooking Chicago with unobstructed views or bask in the beautiful warm hues of each evening’s sunset. This well-maintained high-rise has 24-hour door staff, on-site management, and a fitness room (that you’ll actually want to use). Within minutes of everything you could ever want—public transit, the Lakefront & trails, shopping (The Roosevelt Collection & Target to name a few), Solider Field, museums, dog parks & more—you’ll love to call 1255 S. State #1814 home. A deeded garage parking spot is included in the price.
