Whether it’s the extensive list of first-rate living amenities, the breathtaking million dollar views, or simply because of a building’s recognizable façade and architecture among all the high-rises in Chicago’s skyline—as in the case of the Hancock Building or Trump Tower Chicago—some condo and rental buildings just have more of an “it” factor when it comes to exclusiveness and popularity. So what, exactly, are some of Chicago’s most desirable luxury buildings to call home?

When it comes to buying a new downtown Chicago condo, buyers not only have to think about exactly what they want in a new home, but also a property’s resale value as well. Nobody knows what the future holds, and while one particular downtown Chicago condo may seem like the perfect fit today, it might just be the next place you outgrow tomorrow.

In a market like downtown Chicago, there’s always going to be homes, condos and rentals that blow your mind in terms of finishes, amenities and of course…the price tag. Even if you don’t happen to be in the market for a luxury rental and spending more than a few thousand dollars per month seems like something out of a fairy tale right now, it’s always fun to see what’s on the market and maybe dream that one day you too can call one of these luxury properties home.

With so many rentals currently on the market in downtown Chicago, what exactly defines “luxury” when it comes to condos and apartments for rent? Does it depend on the amount of space, the amenities offered in a particular building, or is it more about the details and finishes seen throughout

A triple condo now on the market in the John Hancock Center could soon smash the old record sale price for a unit in the building. The latest offering is a newly redesigned condo that takes the square footage from three condos, forming a new 4,100 square foot home with four-bedrooms, four-baths and a massive, combined space, incorporating the kitchen, dining and living rooms into one L-shaped design. 

Just as impressive as the condo’s size is its current asking price. Now on the market for $2.5 million, the unit far surpasses the old record price for a condo sold in the building. A more than 3,000 square foot unit was purchased for $1.65 million back in May of this year.

While that particular unit was on the 91st floor of the John Hancock Tower, the

Not surprisingly, No. 9 Walton, Waldorf Astoria Chicago, and Trump Tower feature the three highest priced condos right now, each boasting a price tag of well over $12 million. Somewhat unexpected, just two condos over at Vista Tower are among some of the Windy City’s 25 most expensive units on the market right now, which is the same number of units you’ll see listed over at The Palmolive in that same category.

The Fulton Market District is a neighborhood that’s generating a lot of buzz lately, but mostly on the commercial side of things.

But speaking of May Street, a couple of the West Loop/Fulton Market’s most expensive residential listings both happen to be inside the same building right now—312 N. May. 

The first unit here, a 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom loft with a whopping 5,000 square feet of living space, is listed for a cool $2,149,000, which doesn’t seem like a bad deal given it’s a living space
