Flirting with the Kennedy Expressway in River West, this 3/2.5 duplex condo has just made its grand debut, listing to the tune of $649K. Its contempo interiors get things crackin' with 14-foot ceilings and a full-height window wall. The quirky living room, favored by exposed brick, leads up to an open eat-in kitchen with plenty of stainless steel goodness. Clocking in at 2,000-square feet, the unit also delivers a fireplace, cherry floors, study, whirlpool baths, "endless California closets" (backup Beach Boys' greatest hits title), and a modest private patio and gardens. At $253 per month, HOA dues aren't too much of a killer. The brokerbabble implores us to conclude there's "nothing else like it." You be the judge.
