Heartland Real Estate Business: Interra Brokers $16.2M Sale of Condo Deconversion in Chicago


CHICAGO — Interra Realty has brokered the sale of a 101-unit condominium property in Chicago for $16.2 million. The sale of the property is a deconversion to rental units. The building, which consists of 63 one-bedroom units and 38 studio units, is located at 732 W. Bittersweet Place in the Buena Park neighborhood. The purchase price amounts to $160,742 per unit.

Patrick Kennelly, Joe Smazal and Paul Waterloo of Interra represented the buyer, Skiritai Bittersweet LLC. Kennelly and Waterloo, along with Interra’s Jon Morgan and David Goss, represented the condominium association.

The deconversion occurred because of the high percentage of rentals in the building and the rising rental rates in Chicago, according to Interra. Under the Condominium Property Act in Illinois, unit owners can elect to sell a condo property if 75 percent or more are in agreement. Owners then have the option to either move out or to leaseback from the new owner.
