Another day, another penthouse to spotlight. This time, we cruised to a loft building in Bucktown, less than a block from the old Bloomingdale Line which awaits its eventual rebirth as an elevated park. This 4/2.5 unit on the 6th floor is new-to-market with an ask of $1.049M. Too steep? Perhaps, but it's hard to say as the listing is silent on square footage. Never mind timber, this place gets down with concrete— in columns and ceiling beams that soar over the living/dining area. Two window walls and 14-foot ceilings throughout ensure a roomy feel. Other joys: gourmet kitchen, exposed ductwork, 2-car attached garage, and a free-floating staircase leading up to a 300-square foot roof deck with skyline views. The brokerbabble implores us to conclude this place is "one of a kind!" You be the judge.
