How much house can you buy for $500,000? This. Just on the market, a tasty 3-bed, 2-bath Harbor View condo that oozes luxury. Here's the drool checklist: corner unit, beautifully designed things, a bit of posh in the kitchen and enough space for a conga-line dance. At 1,580 square feet – one of the most spacious in the 30-story Prairie District building at 1901 South Calumet Avenue – it fits just so. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring panoramic views from the east, west and south. Or step into the sun on your 20-foot private balcony. From developer Related Midwest. They got this right. Asking $475,000 to $550,000. Perk: Outdoor dog park.
