Single Family Homes in Bridgeport

A few weeks ago we mentioned Lexington Square, a development in Bridgeport between Bubbly Creek, the Stockyards, and South Halsted Street.

Today our friends over at Taylor Johnson PR sent over a release about Lexington Park — the expansion into single-family homes.  Interestingly, this may be the closest location to downtown Chicago where you can get a new single-family home.  It’s nice to see Bridgeport rebuilding.

Lexington Homes Debuts Single-Family Homes at Lexington Place in Bridgeport

CHICAGO (July 9, 2012) – New-construction single-family homes in the city? That’s right, Chicago-based Lexington Homes has announced the opening of a new community of single-family homes called Lexington Place, located in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. The builder plans to break ground on the homes this summer.

Lexington Place, located at 37th Street and Lituanica Avenue, will include nine single-family homes situated eight blocks west of U.S. Cellular Field. The community will offer two floor plans measuring approximately 2,000 to 2,300 square feet, with base prices starting from $459,000.

Homes will come standard with three or four bedrooms, 2½ baths, separate living and dining rooms, eat-in kitchens, two-car garages, basements and oversized yards. Options include additional bedrooms and bathrooms. Sullivan, Goulette & Wilson is the architect for the project.

“There aren’t many new single-family home communities opening up anywhere, much less in the city,” said Jeff Benach, co-principal of Lexington Homes. “This is an exceptional opportunity for buyers looking for a family-sized home with a yard and all the luxuries of single-family living, along with the convenience of being so close to downtown and other local attractions. We expect to generate a lot of interest from people looking for a single-family home in a great urban location.”

Another advantage is the homes will have oversized lots. “These lots are 20 feet deeper than the typical Chicago lot,” Benach says. “Our sites are 147 feet deep while the normal Chicago lot is 125 feet deep. So, there is even more room for gardening, kid’s play sets and dogs to run the yard.”

The convenient location of Lexington Place to downtown and entertainment and cultural amenities is another key selling point. “Homeowners can walk to the Chicago White Sox ballpark,” said Benach. “They can also easily reach the many new trendy restaurants, bakeries, boutiques and art studios that have cropped up recently in the area. In fact, Bridgeport is becoming a more and more diverse, interesting and cultural neighborhood each day.”

The community is in proximity to two lines of the “L” and a new Metra train station in the neighborhood, and it is easily accessible to major expressways like Interstates 90/94 and 55.

All homes at Lexington Place will feature 42-inch maple cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen; granite vanities in baths; and hardwood flooring throughout the main level.

To visit the Lexington Place sales center, which is temporarily located at the Lexington Square2 sales center, exit I-90/94 at 35th Street and head west for eight blocks. Turn left at Halsted Street and continue for three blocks to 37th Street. Turn right at 37th Street and the sales center will be located just ahead at 37th and Sangamon streets. Sales center hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
