Chicago has a problem with old churches. Some of them are being demolished, while others are receiving new life as condo conversions. Take for instance this old building at 1117 West Barry in the heart of Lakeview. It has been gutted and now contains multiple loft-like residences. This particular two bedroom, two bathroom unit is quite spacious at 1,900 square feet, and sports all of the essential loft qualities: high ceilings, exposed brick and big windows. Though this particular listing does not specifically state that the building is a former church, a listing for another unit that has been recently sold does confirm this. A private roof deck and garage parking space are included with this unit's $599,000 ask.
