Although Trump Tower Chicago was completed back in 2009, it's most expensive unit, the penthouse on the 89th floor, has sat idle for the past 5+ years waiting for any buyer willing to flip the bill for its mind-blowing $32 million asking price.  

According to an earlier report from the Tribune however, that wait appears to finally be over.  

Initial reports are showing that despite still being a raw unit, the new owner, Sanjay Shah, founder and CEO of a tech company called Vistex, closed the deal at $17 million (all cash), or just under half price of its $32 million ask. 

Even still, the sale of this 14,000 square foot residence in the sky has now become Chicago's most expensive residential sale ever, with the 20,000 square foot mansion on Burling Street in Lincoln Park now taking over as Chicago's highest-listed property currently on the market.

So now that the penthouse at Trump Tower is offcially sold, what else is on the market at 401 N. Wabash? Here's a look at some of the other most expensive units at Chicago's most famous residential building:
