Well-heeled urban hoarders rejoice. While city living has traditionally been an exercise in efficient space optimization, feel free to instead spread your legs in this spacious 2,000 square foot loft-style West Loop condominium. It comes with bright hardwood floors, 10-foot plus ceilings, a large open living area, river-facing corner balcony, and — most notably — the mother of all walk-in closets. Built originally as the Butler Brothers Warehouse in 1917, the building was converted to condo and renamed Randolph Place in 1999. Amenities include 24-hour door staff, a spacious exercise facility, a bike room, and — you guessed it — additional storage lockers for the most packrat unit owners.
According to the description not one but two "large" parking spaces are available in the building's lower levels for a $20,000 upcharge. That said, vehicle ownership is all but optional considering that this listing is a short walk to the Loop proper and mere steps from Union and Ogilvie Stations, the CTA Green and Pink lines, and the Chicago water taxi.
Perhaps most impressive is the spectacular sweeping vistas of the Chicago River's confluence. While views directly to the east may have been somewhat compromised by the construction of 150 N. Riverside's and its unique cantilevered base, this unit makes the most of its corner vantage point. The soon-to-be-constructed public green space that will cap the noise and diesel soot of the Metra tracks should more than make up for the partial obstruction. This one is asking $654,000.
UPDATE: This post originally indicated that the building was designed by Daniel Burnham, however it was designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst & White. The original Butler Brothers Warehouse located nearby was designed by Burnham. It was demolished in 1920.
