Who said star architects have to live large? Gordon Gill of Chicago's Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture has just unloaded his former condo in the Mies van der Rohe-designed 2400 N Lakeview in Lincoln Park for $833,000, Crain's reports. The architect has worked on some of the world's highest profile projects, including New York's Nordstrom Tower, Mumbai's Imperial Tower and Saudi Arabia's Kingdom Tower—which will become the world's tallest tower when completed. However, according to Crain's real estate reporter Dennis Rodkin, Gill and his wife purchased a home designed by Chicago's Larry Booth for $2.2 million back in 2009 and then sunk another $2.2 million in updating it. Gill's former condo is certainly much more modest, but it certainly makes sense that one of Chicago's most preeminent architects would live in a building designed by a Chicago-based architect who left behind a long-lasting legacy.
