On Diversey and Sheridan, just inside the border of Lakeview, you'll find the Commonwealth Plaza Condominiums. The twin tower complex, built in 1957, was designed by Mister "less is more" himself, famed modernist Mies van der Rohe. We found this 3,000-square foot penthouse on the 28th floor with floor-to-ceiling windows and nasty views of the city and lake. With light colored hardwood, white walls, and all those damn windows, the inside is plenty bright. The master bed's eastern exposure makes it an ideal spot for taking in the sunrise over Lake Michigan. But sparse furnishings (how about a few more rugs?) leave the spacious living room feeling a little too open. The 4-bed home boasts an updated kitchen with SS-apps, along with access to building amenities like a pool and fitness center. On the market for less than a month with an ask of $1M, it's already drawn a potential suitor.
