It's curious that no one ever talks about South Commons being a bastion of mid-century modern architecture, but indeed it is. Just look at the lines of the spaces, the window placements, the interaction between the inside and the out of doors. The elegant building foyer uses mirrors and glass to enhance the angles of the design. Upstairs, this beautiful corner one bedroom condo has two exposures of windows and a long balcony looking out to mature trees. This tier has the largest one bedroom layout in the building. Much has just been completed to create a terrific refresh to enhance the architecture of the space. Gleaming floors have just been installed throughout. The kitchen cabinets have been reworked, a new countertop with new sink and faucet and a brand new refrigerator and gas range have been installed. Also included is a countertop microwave oven. The bathroom has been completely renovated with a new vanity, sink, fixtures, toilet and lighting. Designer tiles surround the recoated tub and cover the new floor. There are two wall units to cool and use as additional heat. The LR unit is less than 3 years old. Radiant heat supplied by the building will keep your toes warm all winter long. South Commons is the best value in all of the South Loop. Beautifully manicured grounds, terrific management, inground pools (awaiting post pandemic reopening) and modest assessments which include just about everything at an affordable price. This unit has been upgraded more than most and is truly ready to move in. While it is at treetop level, you have the option of taking the elevator or using the stairs. There is a communal and bright laundry room right across the hall from the elevators on the main floor and storage lockers as well. It's got easy access to public transportation and to the highways and has an amazing 120 Walk Score for biking: they call it a biker's paradise. Close to the big Mariano's on King Drive, the Jewel supermarket at 34th, Chinatown, the IIT (Illinois Institute of Technology) Campus and the Illinois College of Optometry. McCormick Place Convention Center and the White Sox Park are close too, as well as the Lakefront path, beaches and marinas. Tennis courts, a playground and the baseball field of Dunbar Park are across the street. There is rental parking throughout the grounds, but there is a waitlist to get a spot. In 2005, the association opted to curtail rentals, so all new owners must be owner occupants.
