A 62nd-floor condo in Chicago’s Four Seasons building recently sold to billionaire and Aon Corp. founder Patrick G. Ryan. The multimillion-dollar sale, which closed on October 31, was first reported by Crain’s last week. The Chicago Tribune later identified Ryan and wife Shirley as the Michigan Avenue property’s new owners.
Spanning 4,100 square feet, the condo was renovated in the mid-1990s by Chicago architects Stanley Tigerman and Margaret McCurry. The three-bedroom home, which was previously featured in Architectural Digest, was sold by the estate of late philanthropist and art collector Judith Neisser, who passed away earlier this year.
The condo features clean lines with predominantly white decor, looking equal parts high-end home and modernist art gallery. Standout features include various built-in bookshelves and banquette seating, a bright chef’s kitchen, a formal dining room, and—of course—stunning downtown views.
On top of their business successes, the Ryans are well known for their philanthropic giving. The couple’s names adorn Northwestern University’s Welsh-Ryan Arena and Ryan Field as well as Streeterville’s Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.
Update: This post originally stated that Margaret McCurry was retired. Although the architect did close her Wells Street Chicago office in 2017, McCurry is still practicing.
