Developer Of Boutique Converted Church Condo In Logan Square Asks $500K

The developers behind a new boutique, church-to-condos conversion are still trying to sell one of the last remaining condos in the upscale and quirky Logan Square building. The condo, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, ground floor duplex, just returned to the market at an asking price of $499,900—significantly down from its previous listing prices.

The home is one of 10 units in the building, called "Sanctuary on the Square" because it is near Palmer Square and Logan Square, and because it exists inside a 109-year-old brick church with wide, arched windows, stained glass, and other architectural details that remain from when the church housed the Greater Garfield Park Missionary Baptist Church. The first floor and ground-floor duplex opens out onto a relatively spacious private patio with grass and pavers at street level.

The first of the building's condos went on the market in mid-2016, and since then, the 1,375 unit at 2900 W. Shakespeare Ave. #4 has gone from a listing price of over $579,900 (in March of 2017) to just under $500,000 now.
