Buying in the Lamar Tower can be tricky for several reasons. The building has over 200 units, each with different pros and cons. For instance, certain views are superior to others – this affects the value of different units (both positively and negatively.) In addition, Lamar Tower is also an older building and while it has shown good condo appreciation rates in the last 10 years, there are many comparable newer residential high rises within The Loop.
