Location: Chicago, Illinois
The Skinny: Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood is well known for its high-end residential stock, and this 12-story building designed in 1923 by noted Second City architect Howard Van Doren Shaw is doing its part to keep that reputation intact, offering up a luxury apartment that takes up the entire 10th floor. A private elevator vestibule opens up onto the 8,000-square-foot unit, which features interior design by Marvin Herman and Michael La Rocca with marble floors, imported silk wall coverings, and Greek columns—all of which recall a posh European country estate (or, less charitably, a high-end hotel suite). With 360-degree views of Lake Michigan, Lincoln Park, and the city, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom condo has plentiful natural lighting; even in the rooms with the darkest walls and most light-absorbing paneling, the white ceilings and marble floors keep it from becoming a tomb. The unit, which is in the same building the late movie critic Gene Siskel called home, is asking $10.75M.
