It’s pretty rare that we see move-in ready places anywhere close to downtown list for under $100K. We’ve seen a wide range of listing prices in the high-rise 1300 East Lafayette lately, while many Mies van der Rohe co-ops in Lafayette Park have listed and sold between $300-500K over the past couple years. Earlier this year, we saw a renovated midcentury modern co-op at the neighboring Cherboneau Place list for $74,900, then sell for $76,000. This new listing has also been smartly renovated to reflect its midcentury modern character, and it’s listing for $84,900.
This unit has two bedrooms and one full bath, plus an open living space with a smaller kitchen. Cherboneau Place has a shared laundry center, gated parking, a fitness center, and a woodworking shop. It’s located right in the middle of Lafayette Park, close to the Dequindre Cut, Eastern Market, the Riverfront, and downtown. Units in this building had generally sold for much less, but these renovated options are pretty appealing. HOA fees run $550 per month. It’s listed through Dean Eveslage at Century 21 Curran & Christie.
