We've been fond of this snazzy Lakeview East midrise for awhile now, so we were quite pleased to learn that the 9th floor penthouse just came on line. Unlike the other units in the building, the penthouse alone is endowed with wrap-around 14-foot window walls. How's that for special treatment? The brokerbabble really tries to get into your head: "You can search the neighborhood over, BUT NOTHING ELSE COMPARES!" At 2,000 square feet, these may not be the most voluminous digs for the price, but they toss in three—count 'em three—outdoor areas, the landscaped rooftop terrace most impressive among them. And we couldn't overlook the sun-drenched living room with a funky light fixture and stellar views. On the market for $975K, the 3/2 condo also offers up heated garage parking, whirpool tubs, sub-zero, custom mill work, and hardwood floors. And you'll have your pick of retail on a vibrant stretch of Broadway.
