Developer Keeps It Quiet At 550 St Clair

November 29, 2009 - Chicago real estate developer Sutherland Pearsall is a partnership of Mark Sutherland and Alex Pearsall. This duo has focused on constructing condos and townhomes that appeal to young professionals, according to an interview they recently gave to the Tribune. In their words, they build what appeals to themselves because they fit into the demographic of buyers they want to attract.

One of their most well-known high-rises is 550 St Clair in Streeterville. This 26 story glass tower was designed by Brininstool + Lynch and still has a selection of studio to three bedroom condos for sale at prices running from around $197,500 to $1.5 million. The finishes in these condos include Bosch kitchen appliances, German made cabinets, Brazilian maple or cherry hardwood floors and posh marble baths. Building amenities include a pool, sauna and fitness room.

Sutherland Pearsall also is behind the Drexel Square Townhouses located in Kenwood. These townhomes have from three to four bedrooms, depending on the plan, and attached two car garages. Features such as lofty vaulted ceilings and cozy fireplaces are common. Pricing on these homes ranges from $349,900 to over $464,900.

And if silence really is a virtue, then condos and townhomes built by this duo would rate pretty high. To get maximum sound proofing, the developers use layers of concrete, insulation and drywall in the floors and ceilings. They also add extra insulation around the bedroom and bathroom walls inside each unit to keep interior noise to a minimum.

Besides 550 St Clair, there are quite a few other Chicago Condos In Streeterville for sale from other developers, so why not take an afternoon and tour a few?
