This unique investment portfolio is in the heart of the sought-after Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, consisting of (5) residential condo units and (2) commercial units, all within the same building. Located at 163 West Division Street and 1143-45 North Wells Street, the two commercial units have been gut-renovated and combined into a single restaurant. The entire portfolio is 100% fully occupied and generates an annual income of approximately $345,000.

All five residential units are currently managed as an AirbNb. The (2) commercial units have been combined to create a high-quality, 1,560 square feet open-concept restaurant currently occupied by the popular vegan eatery “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Meat.”

Blocking Rights

The cumulative ownership of the 7 units represents 20% ownership of the entire multi-use building – which enables the investor to have “blocking rights.” This would provide the investor with effective control over the entire building – and significantly, any potential disposition of the entire site.


Vibrant & Prestigious

Located between three of the most sought-after and growing neighborhoods for young professionals and wealthy retirees in Chicago: Old Town, River North, Gold Coast.

  • The OLD TOWN area is a charming residential neighborhood and has a vibrant and growing nightlife scene.
  • The GOLD COAST consists of high-end retail shops, multiple upscale restaurants, and features multi-million dollar historical single-family homes. It is walking distance from Michigan Ave as well as the iconic and renowned “Magnificent Mile” and Lake Shore Drive.
  • The CHICAGO TRANSIT (CTA) Red Line stop is a short two-block walk. The main highway I-94 and the commercial business district THE LOOP are only a 3-4 minute drive.
