Asking considerably less cash than the $9 million (albeit larger) unit one floor below, this sky-high penthouse atop The Legacy at Millennium Park is a perfect fit for well-heeled buyers seeking jaw-dropping eastern views that will never be obstructed. The 5,000-square-foot space was completely renovated in 2014. While most condos in the Solomon, Cordwell, Buenz-designed tower from 2009 feature plain white ceilings and blank supporting columns, this home raises the bar with its twelve feet of headroom and abundance of customized trim.
The overall decor is fairly unoffensive and sports plenty of beige tones with sporadic blue and teal accents. Resembling the prow of a great glass ship, the unit’s master bedroom juts towards the lake and is flanked by windows on three sides. It connects to a spacious spa-like bathroom with onyx inlayed floors and large closets. The kitchen comes with upgraded appliances, playful light fixtures, high-quality cabinetry and stone, and a breakfast nook with a striking north-facing perspective of downtown Chicago. Seeking $5,990,000—or $1198 per square foot—so-called "forever views" don’t come cheap.
