Are you as unpersuaded as we are by the "rare" claim on this 38th floor condo at Huron & Wabash? It's nice and all, but its assets are basically those of most of the tower's units: floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies, open kitchen, and hardwood floors. And you can't own a view. Hey, at least it's on a high floor— how does one withstand a low floor at The Pinnacle? Listing in February for $1.5M, three-bed closed for $1.475M.

We've made our acquaintance with this modernist town home complex at Dearborn & Oak once or twice before. The just-sold 4/4.5 home has designer this and that, floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies, and—most crazily—an indoor/outdoor space with retractable roof. Take your time with the listing, it's pretty drunk on shorthand (i.e. "1st lvl bdrm ste perf for gsts or ofc off gracious entry"). First asking $2.2M in January, another quick closing resulted in $1.925M for the seller.

The week's top sale price goes to a Noah Properties' new-build in Lincoln Park. It's the glitziest we've seen from the very active single-family builder, and proved a lightning rod for criticism when we posted on it in December. A selection from the comments section: "Eurotrash specific", "quite garish", "the place is lit like a control tower". But the six-bed had its defenders too. The sale wasn't as quick and tidy as many involving lower-bracket Noah homes, but the place still fetched $2.15M, just $50K off the initial ask.
