Chicago isn't short on vintage condo buildings but if you're looking to combine the charm and character of vintage architecture with the ultimate luxury living experience, here is a closer look at where condo buyers should start their downtown condo search. 

The Palmolive

First completed in the late 1920s, The Palmolive is one of Chicago’s most recognizable buildings. Now housing luxury condos, the art deco style high-rise also offers an exercise room, club room and plenty of privacy.

1500 N. Lake Shore

1500 N Lake Shore provides a fitness center and door service in Chicago’s Gold Coast. The sophisticated co-op also dates back to the late 1920s, with impressive lake views and plenty of appeal. 

1301 N. Astor

Staying in the Gold Coast, 1301 N Astor is yet another vintage building dating back to the 1920s. The intimate building contains less than a dozen units, with period touches including original terrazzo floors and wood burning fireplaces. 

1120 N. Lake Shore

Constructed in the mid 1920s, 1120 N Lake Shore offers its residents the convenience of a doorman and a fitness center. Buyers in the vintage building can expect to find renovated condos with a fireplace and lake views.
