In the midst of modern doctor’s offices and hotels, it’s hard to miss this Neo Gothic building.

Originally called the American Furniture Mart when it opened in 1926, today it is home to 415 condos. When it was completed, the 29-story structure was the largest building in the world encompassing an entire block and reaching 474 feet. It also famously housed Playboy’s headquarters until 2012.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom condo was remodeled with an open layout bringing in more light and lakefront views. The entryway, which features colored lights, leads to an large living room and dining room surrounded by eastern views. The galley kitchen is tucked away, but spares no expense. There are Carrara marble countertops, Italian floor tiles, and high-end stainless steel appliances. Plus, a built-in Miele coffee system.

The building offers an indoor pool, a gym, coffee shop, barber, and a Walgreens. While you’d be living near the heart of downtown, the location is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of Michigan Avenue.

It’s listed for $1,290,000 with Rafael Murillo of Compass.
