On State and Monroe, in the heart of the Loop, the historic Mentor Building couldn't be more in the thick of things. The handsome Chicago School building, designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw, has presided over the intersection of State and Monroe since 1906. This 3-bed duplex loft on the 16th floor is back on the market. After a staggering eleven price chops in the last few years, the ask has landed at an even $600K--for now at least. Inside, you really get a sense of the wrap-around city views thanks to the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows. Exposed ductwork and vaulted ceilings play up the loft feel. And we're definitely feelin the spiral staircase leading up the second floor, which doesn't feel too confining on account of the double skylights. The 2,660-square foot pad comes equipped with hardwood floors, cherry cabinetry, designer kitchen, and granite countertops. And the place also throws in two terraces, each with first-rate city views.
