Lakefront Penthouse, Target of a Great Many Superlatives, Lists for $1.49M

Sure must seem like we're all about Streeterville these days. What can we say, the excitement is unrelenting. On the heals of our "Glass House" write-up comes this glam 2/2 number on the top floor of Lake Shore Place (formerly the American Furniture Mart). Or, more forcefully and ALL IN CAPS: "UNDER THE LAPIS BLUE TOWER ON TOP OF 680 LAKE SHORE IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING CITY HOMES EVER OFFERED". So begins the listing copy. The 2,600-square-foot duplex is indeed no slouch, rocking 17' ceilings in the entertaining area, panoramic lake and city views, a marble living room floor, and a lofted master suite. And, it's just about half what D-Rose is paying for a similarly-sized, albeit more skyward, Trump unit.

The listing agent gives a seminar in brokerbabble, finding space for "exciting", "breathtaking", "grand", "expansive", "sweeping", and "dramatic" all in one paragraph. Pay it a visit and maybe you'll become equally unhinged. Building amenities include an indoor pool and health club. Fun fact: at a height of 474 feet and filling out the entire block between LSD and McClurg Court Street, Lake Shore Place was the largest building in the world when it opened in 1926.
