4,200 Square-Foot Penthouse Gets High Marks for Design

New, 8 comments


As if this town hasn't heard enough from multi-million dollar listings in 2013, another majorly showy spread has hit the market in the sky above River North. This 4,200 square-foot 3-bed gobbles up half of the 54th floor at 55 East Erie. A "most enviable location" is an understatement (Come on Prudential Rubloff, you can do better!). This place sports the best in city views from three private terraces and walls of windows, it's fond of the centerpiece fireplace, and Kara Mann Design is behind the dark-toned, heavy decor. Despite the normal tendency to accentuate lightness and whiteness when dwelling in the clouds, the dark stuff pans out. The furnishings are pretty spot on, too, but, you know, we've never seen anyone sitting in one of those swinging bubble chairs. New to market, the initial asking price is $5.9M.
