This third-floor corner unit in City Side Lofts was built in 2007 and offers the lowest cost per square foot in our slide show. Yet it provides all of the high-end features you'd expect from urban living. In the kitchen, you'll find granite counter tops and backsplash, a big eat-in island, custom lighting and stainless-steel appliances. From there, the open floor plan flows right into the living and dining area, where floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides allow natural light to flood in. The bathroom features a double sink, tiled shower and separate tub. A balcony stretching along one side of the unit is long and inviting. There's also a common rooftop area and one spot in the underground secured parking garage. Step outside and you're just a few blocks west of all the downtown bars and theaters. One of the closest watering holes is the PreFunk Beer Bar, where you can refill your growler from one of more than 20 rotating taps of craft brews.
