Condos Currently For Sale In SoNo

Lincoln Park’s Premier Condominium Residence

Poised to be Lincoln Park’s premier condominium residence, SoNo is a 28-story building located at 860 W. Blackhawk. Enjoy unobstructed views of Chicago’s skyline and Lake Michigan. Prices have recently been cut, making this an even more attractive option.

Zoning Issues

At the time that Smithfield obtained the building site, zoning in Chicago permitted high-rise residential construction in the area. However, a series of rezonings were being proposed at the time that delayed construction of the property. Eventually Smithfield did obtain permission to develop the property. Zoning regulations currently prohibit the development of new high-rise residential buildings in the area bounded by the Chicago River, West Division Street, North Halsted Street, and West North Avenue, with the exception of this property.

Condominium Residences

Conveniently near public transportation and located in a neighborhood with a large number of retail stores and restaurants, SoNo is right in the heart of the action. The neighborhood will soon boast a new Whole Foods, and as pointed out on, it will be the only high-rise development in the area.
