"Perfect for large art collections," says the listing for this 4,000-square-foot loft, probably alluding to the current owner's massive collection of pop art. This place ranked high on our list of Chicago's loftiest lofts earlier in the month, and it has the size and style to contend with just about any downtown loft. The 3BD, 3BA unit has 14-foot ceilings; a wood-burning fireplace; balcony and patio access; and it's located in the heart of River North. Most of the living space is on the second floor, but there is also a lofted third floor that could be converted to office space, according to the listing (the place is zoned live/work). The loft has been on the market for about two months, and it's priced at $1,195,000. Last week, the domu.com blog also noted that it's also listed for rent, for $5,900 per month.
