Wake up every morning and watch the sun reflect off the lake and Millennium Park’s famous “Bean” sculpture in this renovated three-bedroom condo for sale along Historic Michigan Avenue’s “Cultural Mile.” Situated in the old Montgomery Ward building designed by Schmidt, Garden, and Martin in 1898, the unit may not match the sheer size and opulence of the historic building’s jaw-dropping 19th floor penthouse, but certainly offers great views, plenty of space, trendy contemporary decor, and proximity to the best attractions and institutions Chicago has to offer.

Each of the home’s three bedrooms feature their own ensuite bathroom with the master also sporting a walk-in closet and attached home office. Upgrades include new floors, modern lighting elements, and a new designer kitchen. Residents of 6 N. Michigan also have access to a rooftop deck, party room, screening room, and fitness center with steam room and sauna.

The recently-listed home also comes with two attached garage spaces as part of its $1,450,000 asking price. The $2,306 in additional monthly HOA dues is by no means a small number, but is hardly surprising given the size of the unit and the age of the ornate 19th century structure.
