This turn-of-the-last-century Michigan Ave building has been fitted with eight high-end condominiums, one to each floor. The seventh floor unit is currently available for $1.449M, and we're really digging its sense of style, from the glass doors to the slick furniture and lighting. The sculpture doesn't hurt either. The building's dimensions necessitate division of the 3,900-square-foot space into two wings, connected by a narrow foyer. But that doesn't hurt the unit in the least— on the contrary, it makes it feel larger while lending an exclusivity to the master suite. It also allows for balconies in the folds of the building, where there might otherwise just be the rear-facing one. If the South Loop building boom ever returns this smallish building may find itself subsumed by towering monstrosities, but for the time being the unit enjoys respectable views of Grant Park, Soldier Field, and the lake. Oh, and the price includes three parking spots. Not too shabby.
