Over at the Olympia Centre, wedged somewhere between Christie Hefner's pad and an outrageous $7.9M penthouse, a $3.899M condo lies in wait. Half the size of the still-available 60th floor penthouse, this 58th floor unit produces 4,400 square feet, three beds, three-and-a-half baths, a double-height living room w/ 20-foot windows to the Hancock Center and lake, and 'smart home' automation. Other niceties: a home theater, modern fireplaces, an amazingly streamlined designer kitchen, a two-story master suite with its own 20-foot window (sculptural motorcycle presumably not included), jacuzzi tubs, and office loft. You'd think this would be a revelatory moment for the buying public, but it turns out the property has been on and off the market since 2008 when it asked a cool $5M. Oh, and joining this building's celebrity constellation is Mike Ditka who owns a place 20 floors below.
