Heart of the City

Appears in the June 2021 issue.

After years of negotiations that delayed development, the first residents of Central Park Place are starting to move into the 17-unit condo building on Washington Street. Flanked by Old Nichols Library to the north (an available restaurant space) and U.S. Bank to the south, residents of the eight remaining luxury condominiums will live in the heart of downtown Naperville. Head up to enjoy a rooftop deck, out for some fresh air on your private terrace, or down to grab coffee from Sweetwaters. “To walk down the stairs and be in the heart of our city—there’s really nothing like it,” says @properties broker Kim Minot. “It’s such a unique building because it’s the first in downtown that’s both commercial and residential.” Another cool feature, she says, is the car lift that takes residents—within their vehicles—to and from the underground garage. Buyers can customize Wolf/SubZero appliances, cabinetry, and Quartz countertops by making appointments with local kitchen and design house, Liam Brex. “They really make it easy to buy at Central Park Place,” says Minot. “Whatever taste you have—modern, traditional, or transitional—it has to be really fluid since everything’s on one level, and they can pull it all together for you.” $729,000–$1,750,000 | 110 S. Washington St., Naperville
