Hollywood actor Vince Vaughn cashed out of the Palmolive Building years ago, but the iconic Chicago high-rise is still one of the city’s most desirable—and expensive—addresses. Case in point: this newly listed four-bedroom unit on the 18th floor available for $7.35 million.

The home is one of just five units in the 1929 Art Deco tower with its own outdoor space, according to the listing notes from Coldwell Banker agent Brian Loomis. In addition to its 5,000 square feet of living space, it offers an impressive 1,600-square-foot terrace with sweeping Michigan Avenue and Lake Michigan views.

Other noteworthy features include an updated chef’s kitchen, a pair of included parking spaces, and a formal foyer leading to a wood-paneled living area topped by an ornately carved molding and divided into two rooms by a two-sided fireplace.

The multimillion-dollar asking price puts the Mag Mile property among Chicago’s most expensive homes currently for sale. The condo last changed hands back in 2007 when it sold for roughly $6.2 million.

The home’s clubby entertaining space is divided into two areas by a double-sided fireplace.
The eat-in kitchen has a large central island and slee dark wood cabinets.
A home office space has plenty of built-in shelves and storage.
