Daily Real Estate Updates

sudler-sothebys-logo30 December 2009 ? William Senne, a prominent Chicago condo developer, recently made a splash by criticizing rival developers who slashed their prices. Now, Senne is pursuing a similar tactic. His proposed ?green building? named EcoLogic and containing 94 condominium units near the intersections of Damen, Fullerton & Elston was to feature a rooftop garden, recycling stations and power-producing wind turbines. Facing two foreclosure suits totaling $6.8 million, Senne has auctioned units and sacrificed amenities to lure more buyers in this down market. It is not clear how many units were sold at the 2339-59 block of N. Seeley Ave. development. Senne, CEO of Senco Properties Inc., had yet to obtain even construction financing and his project never broke ground. His lender, Wheatland Bank of Naperville, says Senne defaulted on two loans related to EcoLogic. Mr. Senne stopped making payments in March on a $5.1-million loan and he now owes more than $5.4 million on that mortgage. He stopped making payments on a second loan, valued at $1.4 million, in July. Most important, Wheatland Bank claims Senne has personally guaranteed both loans.
