On the Market: Showtime in Logan Square for $500K
This spacious condo offers splendid views no matter what room you're in. And since it follows an open plan, most of the rooms are all one anyway.
Residents prize the converted factory building at 2200 Arch St. for the views it offers. Many of its units are laid out to take maximum advantage of the building’s nearly floor-to-ceiling windows.
This loft condo is one of those units. In fact, it’s set up so that both you and your guests will enjoy the show.
Since it’s a true loft condo, it has a balcony that contains one of the unit’s two bedrooms and a den/home office space separated by a floating steel staircase from the main floor.
Meanwhile, that main floor’s living spaces are arrayed in linear fashion beneath that balcony, from the living room on one end to the dining area on the other, with the kitchen in between.
The net effect resembles nothing so much as a theater, with that wall of windows on the opposite side the stage.
The agent’s photographer had the curtains drawn, er, shades lowered, when shooting this unit, no doubt to avoid having all that light pouring through the windows wash out their shots. This strongly suggests that the view you will enjoy while sipping your morning coffee, prepping a nice meal for you and your guests, or watching TV in the evening will be to the west. That means you can watch the sunbeams bounce off the Cira Centre when you wake up and bask in the orange glow as the sun sets over 30th Street Station at day’s end.
And if I’ve gotten the orientation wrong? You should still have a great show to enjoy whatever direction you face. Just remember to keep those shades down if you face east, however, lest you get a full blast of sun in the sleeping loft in the morning.
