On the eve of Thanksgiving 2014, we hope all of our readers, clients, friends, and family have a lot to be thankful for as we approach the end of yet another calendar year. Real estate-wise, it's certainly been a crazy year here in Chicago, as we saw many interesting and positive trends that we certainly hope will carry over into 2015. But in the meantime, we still have a full month to go before the new year sets in, meaning there's still plenty of time left to that perfect new place to call home around the downtown Chicago area. And if you're in the market for a lavish new condominium residence in the city, here's a look at the 10 downtown Chicago condo buildings we're thankful for in 2014:

While every Lucien Lagrange building is impressive visually and architecurally, 840 N. Lake Shore might just be our favorite Lucian Lagrange-designed building in Chicago.
