New condos/retail by Madonis Development in the Fulton River District
Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on May 21, 2009
Madonis Development is the developer behind these five three-bedroom homes, starting at over 1.29M, with commercial space on the ground floor and residential duplex homes on the second and third floors. With a model home located at 813 W. Fulton Market, Madonis Development built these homes hoping the homeowners would live in the residential space above and operate a small business in the commercial space below.
The Fulton River District, with a mixture of meat packing warehouses, restaurants, retail, and residential units, is uniquely gritty. For this development, I enjoy the different colors of brick used in the construction and I also like the buildings from the back but I am unimpressed with the front of the buildings. Granted, the homes are still under construction but the large, blank void above the third story windows could easily have some sort of ornamentation. Just think how much detail/stone or brickwork could be done to enhance the appearance. For more information on this great development, contact Madonis Development at 312-421-2003.
