Why Owner/Manager chose Chicago

In Real Estate they say 'location, location, location'. We have that. What we say is 'views, views, views'.

What makes this condo unique

Few cities have building as tall as Chicago, fewer still have rent-able Penthouse units. This is you opportunity to experience luxury living at it's finest.

Penthouse Living

  • 4 of 5

My buddies and I attend a yearly niners trip, as painful as its been thr past few years, our digs have always been amazing. This penthouse definitely lived up to the hype. Breath taking views, spacious place and perfectly located to shopping, groceries, public transportation and sites. Would definitely rent again if I was out in the area.

High rise intimacy

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful penthouse has the most spectacular views of the northeast Chicago skyline from every room in the condo. And as grand as the view is during the day, it becomes magical as dusk falls. The building is in a great location within easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants and Navy Pier. It has a super grocery and liquor store right next door! The owners are easy to work with and readily available.

Breathtaking & Spotless

  • 5 of 5

Such an enjoyable experience on the 55th floor with just an incredible view of both the lake and the city. Spotless penthouse, beautiful space & décor, lovely linens and attention to detail by the owners in every respect. Couldn't be nicer!

The view is worth it!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent grocery store next door and great location for walking all over the city made it extremely convenient to stay here for a long holiday weekend. The balcony is great for testing the outdoor temperature without having to travel down 55 floors to go outside, but some outdoor furniture would be nice to sit and enjoy the view - especially since we were there during the fireworks show. Sirens are plentiful downtown so we were glad to be up as high as possible away from their full force. A very pleasant stay in a well-equipped apartment.

Fantastic location and amazing place!

  • 4 of 5

Overall thought the layout, location, views and space were fantastic. Close to everything and having the grocery store right next door made stocking the frig very convenient. Doorman was knowledgable and helpful....9th floor amenities (track, gym, pool, etc) was used daily and great to have onsite.

Only disappointment was how a situation was handled by the owners. On our last night, we were notified that there was a water problem in the building and the water would be shut off from 11pm to 3am. Completely not the fault of the owners and appreciated the heads up. However when we all woke at 6am to take showers to prepare for meetings and mandatory 10am checkout, there was no water in the showers and only cold water coming from the sinks. After 2 phone calls to the owner, finally received a text back that the building was working on it...and a reminder we had to be out by 10am. There was still no hot water by 9am and no concession by the owners to allow a bit later check out to accommodate the hassle of washing our hair in the sink or going down to the 9th floor to use a shower that finally began working. Additionally we had one of our folks drop off the keys downstairs at 10:15 am...but I received a text at 10:20 from the owners reminding me yet again that the check out is 10am and he had to get out now. Not a great finish to a fantastic location.
