This South Loop tower's design definitely catches your eye, for all the wrong reasons. What's the deal with the two tone facade and that strange, spire-like element? Turns out that it's all part of an elaborate adaptive reuse project done by Pappageorge/Haymes. Built in 1906, the lower portion of the building originally served as a cold-storage warehouse until it was converted to condos in 2001 (quite the trend). The top two floors were demolished and replaced with six new levels. But we digress. There's this really snazzy 18th-floor penthouse on the market in the building, with an ask of $625K. Since debuting in March, it's already seen three price reductions, dropping $50K from its original price of $675K. The 3-bed, 2,400-square foot home's stylish, contemporary interiors abound with high-end finishes like Oasis tubs, marble, and a dry bar. The master suite's 12' floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed ductwork, and patio access make it a real standout. And with nary a highrise west of State between this building and downtown, there are some killer views to behold.
