Division Street Apartments Sell for $14.3 Million to West Loop Investors

WICKER PARK —  A new apartment building on the southeast corner of Honore and Division streets in Wicker Park was bought last week for $14.29 million by West Loop-based real estate investors, it was announced on Monday.

Located at 1819 W. Division St., the apartments, named "1819 Lofts," welcomed the first wave of renters on Sunday and are expected to be fully leased by mid-July, Saliterman said.

Previously home to Miller Lumber, Smithfield Properties bought the former lumber yard at 1811-25 W. Division for $3.2 million in 2012.

Saliterman said that his firm was attracted to buying the building because of its "quality construction" and "great location," just east of the Damen and Division intersection.

Headed by Saliterman and Robert Tanaka, Randolph Street Realty Capital also own an apartment building in Logan Square anchored by retail at 2000 N. Milwaukee Ave. that it bought for $4.2 million in 2014.

This intensity of traffic, competing for street access with school drop offs, created safety concerns. The sccheme as supported by the community has 36 units with a mix of sizes, and parking accessed from the alley-where it belongs.

Brett Robinson, a resident of the 500 block of North Wood Street, said "litter is happening every week," and "people are taking pictures of it."
