Chicago Penthouses For Sale

A penthouse condo in Chicago is a unit that’s typically on the highest floor of a building, giving its owners the best views, and often times, the most luxurious features. The idea of a penthouse was actually crated back in the 1920s when industry and economic growth sparked a massive construction boom in New York City. The demand for living in urban areas was through the roof and some of the most desirable living spaces at the time were at the top of existing buildings, and from there, the penthouse was born.

A closer look at penthouse condos in Chicago

As the birthplace of the skyscraper, Chicago has adopted the penthouse concept quite nicely, and just like in New York, many of Chicago’s most sought after condos rest atop very high-end condo buildings like Trump Tower, the Ritz Carlton Residences, Waldorf Astoria Chicago, and The Palmolive—just to name a few. Today, most condo buildings in Chicago have at least one penthouse residence, and in many instances, buildings now include several penthouse “floors,” which anymore were implanted into newer construction condo buildings mainly for marketing purposes. The allure of living in a penthouse certainly has marketability, especially today, where the market is so competitive and developers are trying to give their buildings any advantage possible.
