Baum Realty Group arranges sale in multi-tenant retail in Bucktown/Wicker Park


CHICAGO, IL – June 3, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Chicago-based Baum Realty Group, LLC (“Baum”), one of the Midwest’s leading retail brokerage firms, is pleased to announce that Baum’s Investment Sales Team brokered the sale of a multi-tenant commercial condominium in Chicago, IL.

Baum Realty Group Investment Sales Team of Greg Dietz and Danny Spitz represented a private seller in the transaction of a ±10,451 square foot commercial condominium located at 1669 – 1681 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago, IL for $3,700,000. The commercial condominium is divided into three suites and was 100% occupied by two tenants at the time of sale. The property was purchased by a private investor as a 1031 exchange. According to Dietz, “The Bucktown / Wicker Park neighborhood is viewed as established, yet having upside potential. In today’s investment environment, a stabile retail asset such as this with proximity to public transit options yielded an immense amount of interest from both local and national investors.”
