In New York there’s Madison Avenue and Broadway, Beverly Hills has Rodeo Drive, and here in Chicago, Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive are certainly the two that stand out most.

Living alongside Lake Shore Drive certainly has an appealing quality because of the breathtaking, unobstructed water views, but if you’re lucky enough to have an address somewhere on the section of Michigan Avenue that’s dubbed the Magnificent Mile, chances are your building has a prestigious reputation that can really only be found in a big city atmosphere.

In case you missed it, possible plans for the infamous Chicago Spire site have once again been unveiled, and this time it seems a massive, 2-tower development could actually come to fruition, especially given a new website detailing the project has also been launched.

According to numerous media outlets, developer Related Midwest has announced a stunning mixed-use development that could potentially include a luxury hotel, condos, apartments, a new park on the east side of Lake Shore Drive, and also another extension of the rapidly growing River Walk. 

Back when the Spire site was acquired, an architecturally significant project was promised by Related Midwest, and it appears they fully intend to follow through with that proclamation.

A new plan is reportedly in the works at the site of the former Chicago Spire condo tower. Work on the luxury tower, which once aimed to become the second tallest building in the world, stalled shortly after construction began.

Now about a decade later, a new developer is planning to release its plans on what to do with the site. Those plans are slated for public release within days, though it’s been suggested in the past that any new project could possibly rival the Spire.

Originally, the more than two-acre site included plans for a 2,000-foot condo tower, but construction ended with the building’s foundation. Years later, another developer came in and added landscaping to appease concerned neighbors, but few details have been released on what’s

As the birthplace of the skyscraper, Chicago is filled with unique architecture and high-rises that help define our city. The Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, is perhaps Chicago’s most recognizable building, but several high-rise residential buildings are also a key part of the Windy City skyline.

When narrowing down that wish list for a new Chicago condo, space is often the last thing home buyers want to sacrifice. The unfortunate reality for many condo buyers, however, is that the extra square footage you so desperately want tends to be the number one factor that drives up how much you'll end up paying.

Bargains for two-, three- and even four-bedroom condos can of course be found all over the city, but for each extra bedroom that’s included in a swanky new downtown condo, the harder it becomes to find a place you like at the price you want.

For obvious reasons, three bedroom condos in Chicago are in very high-demand. Whether you want that third bedroom to use as an office, to use for your kids or to simply use as an extra guest room, having
