Chicago’s high-end condo buyers and apartment renters are shifting their priorities in a Covid world, and are seeking out units with balconies, and communal spaces with plenty of room. Dan McCaffery, CEO of developer McCaffery Interests, said Chicagoans “are spending more time at home than ever before and taking stock in those environments.”
One of the firm’s developments is The Orchard Private Residences at 2350 N. Orchard St. in Lincoln Park. The 32-unit condo building under construction will open later in the summer or early fall. Units include balconies of varying sizes and for the top-floor penthouse owners, additional private rooftop terraces, according to the property website.
