Situated in a quiet neighborhood on a tree-lined block at 2300 W. Wabansia is an old 4-story manufacturing building that was converted to loft condominiums in 1996. Today the building is called Clock Tower Lofts. But back in 1919 when the plant was finished it was the home for a wholesale clothing business, Kling Brothers. The initials of the firm remain above the entrance to the building.
113 timber lofts ranging from 1 to 2 bedrooms have hardwood floors, exposed brick, soaring 14” ceilings with timber details, floor to ceiling windows, fireplace and in-unit laundry.
While some units offer private balconies, all residents have access to the rooftop sundeck, exercise room, elevator, garage parking, abundance of nearby shops, restaurants and the new 606 Trail.
The Wicker Park/Bucktown area became part of Chicago in 1837; since then, it has undergone major changes to become the popular, lively neighborhood it is today.
Located just 10 minutes from the Loop, the boundaries of Wicker Park/Bucktown are Armitage Avenue to the north, Chicago Avenue to the south, I–90/94 to the east and Western Avenue to the west. It lies just north of Wicker Park, between North and Fullerton avenues, and from the Kennedy Expressway (routes 90/94) west to Western. The neighborhood was designated a Chicago Landmark District in 1991.
Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods remain a vibrant hub of culture and commerce in Chicago, plentiful in boutiques, restaurants, cocktail bars, concerts venues and condos. The historic Flat Iron Building houses galleries of both established and up-and-coming artists. The neighborhood is also the location of the annual Bucktown Arts Fest (August) and the Round the Coyote art festival (September). Tree-lined streets accent beautiful homes, cozy neighborhood bars and several remarkable churches.
