From elegant historic apartments to ultra-modern dwellings, these hot high-rise listings in Chicagoland offer something for everyone.
This building offers the grandeur and character of yesteryear in a brand-new package located steps from shopping, restaurants, and recreation. “This remains one of the most sought-after buildings in Lincoln Park with units selling for more than $1,000 per square foot,” says listing agent Tere Proctor of the spacious and light-filled three-bedroom unit, which has large rooms with wall moldings and a 102-square-foot patio overlooking Lake Michigan.
Polished travertine flooring, Tigerwood wall paneling, and poured concrete walls complement one another in this fantastic penthouse with floor-to-ceiling windows that capture lake and city vistas. The cook’s kitchen features Poggenpohl oak cabinetry, which includes a built-in desk, and Brazilian granite countertops. In addition to its two large terraces, the unit has a private roof deck with a solarium room that’s accessible via a serpentine bronze staircase.
Outfitted with beautiful moldings, coffered ceilings, and other handcrafted details, this penthouse duplex manse on Lake Shore Drive exudes old-world character and boasts 360-degree views of the lake, the city, and Lincoln Park. The 5,100-square-foot apartment includes a private marble foyer, spacious living areas, and a sunroom with lake views. Not to mention three outdoor living spaces.
Jaw-dropping views from floor-to-ceiling windows distinguish this 2,700-square-foot penthouse unit, which has been totally re-imagined with a reconfigured floor plan and a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops. An outdoor terrace and an on-site swimming pool are just a couple of the listing’s many perks.
This corner southeast unit has been recently renovated by Nate Berkus and Marvin Herman & Associates with quarter sawn oak flooring, wood wall paneling, pivot-hinged doors, and a classic white kitchen with marble countertops and new appliances. Also noteworthy is the oversized master suite, which has two walk-in closets and an en-suite bathroom with heated marble flooring.
