PHOTOGRAPHY BY JIM TSCHETTER/IC360 IMAGES (2629 WEST SUPERIOR); BRENT BORCHARDT (537 NORTH ARTESIAN) Another showcase property on the edge of West Town, 2629 West Superior Street impresses with a sweetly outfitted living room, kitchen (below right), and master bedroom (below). infrastructure are a powerful draw—they convinced the Blake Group to convert a run-down, late 19th-century two-flat at 2629 West Superior Street (now marketed by Gillman for $1.295 million) into a stunning 4,000-square- foot, four-bed, four-bath, 21st-century home. Gone are its timeworn features and façade, replaced by a polished brick and glass exterior, deeper foundation, full-height basement, new third floor, and high ceilings. An open, airy floor plan prevails, while a floating steel and glass staircase, which transverses all four levels, and expansive windows turn the structure into a sleek, light- filled domicile. A gourmet kitchen and enormous third- story master suite with an expansive private deck increase the luxury quotient. High-end new construction is also booming: Greco is marketing two that are sleek contemporaries: a 4,300- square-foot, five-bed, three- and-a-half-bath home at 852 North Rockwell Avenue that sits on a 30-foot- wide corner lot with outdoor decks on every floor ($1.2995 million), and a 4,000-square-foot, five-bed, three-and-a-half-bath at 537 North Artesian Avenue that just hit the market for just north of $1 million. Not only does Smith Park's spot in the lexicon of chic Chicago neighborhoods seem secure, it looks like it may change the equation for its neighbor to the northwest— East Humboldt Park, long an up-and-comer but still late to reach its potential. Ironically, it's officially part of West Town. Clearly its renaissance is just a matter of time. . The master bathroom (left) and bedroom at 537 North Artesian Avenue, a prime example of West Town's new luxe outlook. 134  MICHIGANAVEMAG.COM SPACE HOT 'HOOD
