In an area of Streeterville rife with soulless parking podiums, Helmut Jahn's 600 N. Fairbanks is a beacon of good design. The glassy, wedge-shaped tower manages to cleverly conceal its interior parking with a series of opaque silver tiles, greatly enhancing the pedestrian experience. Of all the units currently on the market in the building, we went for this 18th floor condo, the most expensive of the lot and the only 3-bed currently available. Inside, rich hardwood floors, exposed concrete ceilings, and curving floor-to-ceiling windows really up the chic modernity. And the SE-facing city views put you right in the thick of things. On the market for $765K, the 1,750-square foot res also sports a recessed balcony, marble baths, SS-apps, high-end cabinetry, and access to building amenities like a pool, heated dog run, and rooftop deck. It's been two years since the last price drop, and still no action. Is another reduction in the cards?
