The only duplex in Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe's 860 North Lake Shore Drive has sold for $2M. If you expected the famous "Stainless Steel Apartment" would fetch a more princely sum, it's important to temper those expectations with the reality of a $5,495 monthly co-op assessment. Listing in April for $1.95M, the property went under contract just three weeks later and closed on Tuesday. The 3,400-square-foot unit has attracted international attention for its slick and icy design by architecture firm Krueck+Sexton. The "stainless steel" moniker rests on the floating staircase and steel cabinetry, while other over-the-top features like "flame-cut" granite baths and window walls enhance the concept.
