A Look at Chicago's Most Expensive Penthouses For Sale in Early 2017

Posted by Helaine Cohen on Monday, January 30th, 2017 at 1:23pm.

Luxury PenthousesWhy are penthouse condos in Chicago so popular? As a luxury home buyer, perhaps you find yourself asking a similar question, wondering if paying a premium to live on the top floor is actually worth the added expense. 

To answer that question, though, let’s first dive into some of the advantages a true penthouse condo offers. First, there’s something to be said about the status a penthouse condo carries, which for many luxury buyers, is reason enough to seek out a top-floor unit. 

Penthouses in Chicago also tend to offer more living space than a lower-level unit, which of course is a highly desirable characteristic for anybody who specifically needs or wants a lot of extra room. And of course it goes without saying that, depending on the building, a penthouse condo in Chicago will always offer the best views, which if you’re lucky enough to live near the lakefront, is sometime that will never grow tiresome.
