While increased demand and limited supply has recently dragged Chicago condo values back up to their pre-recession levels, this Streeterville unit located in Helmut Jahn's glass-wrapped tower at 600 N. Fairbanks has seen its price come down considerably since last selling for a cool $700,000 in March of 2014.
Despite the strong market, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit is currently asking for $560,000 . The condo's floor to ceiling windows offer glimpses of Lake Michigan amidst Northwestern's medical buildings from its north-facing living room and, unlike some lower level units in this building, the corner view from the 26th floor master bedroom will remain intact if construction on the proposed 24-story hotel moves ahead to the immediate northwest.
Though the heavy use of unfinished concrete can be polarizing and may leave those with more traditional sensibilities cold, the unit brightens things up with 10-foot ceilings, a private balcony, and lots of natural light. The decently sized open plan kitchen includes stainless appliances and features a stone backsplash and countertops. Completed in 2007, 600 N. Fairbanks offers such amenities as a resident fitness center, indoor pool, and 24-hour door staff. Deeded parking places in the building's heated garage are also available.
