Most Expensive River North Condo Buildings

Nestled against the majestic Chicago River, the River North neighborhood is an enclave of luxury, art, and culture. For discerning buyers seeking the pinnacle of city living, River North is also an ever-alluring canvas of contemporary design and urban convenience. In this deep-dive exploration, we uncover the architectural treasures and opulent lifestyles tucked away in the most exclusive condo buildings that this iconic downtown Chicago neighborhood has to offer.

The Fordham

The Fordham, locates at 25 E. Superior in River North, is superior in every respect. The modern condo sets a high standard of living with interior features that go beyond what the average apartment building offers. Condos at The Fordham come in a diverse array of layouts ranging between one-bedroom and three-bedrooms. That's not all, though; those who are in search of a bit more privacy and exclusivity can opt for an 11th-floor townhome or exclusive penthouse. Whether they spring for a multi-million dollar option or not, buyers should expect nothing less than perfection from every one of the building's 244 suites. Their combination of vintage charm and modernity satisfies the exact kind of feeling people move to a Chicago high-rise looking for. A myriad of sophisticated amenities only further justifies 25 E. Superior's top status among city condos. This place has everything from a wine cellar, tasting room, humidor room, and lounge to a screening room, spa, and year-round pool. There's even maid and room service for 24/7 convenience.

One Chicago

One Chicago has only been around for a matter of years but is already a common entry on many of the city's 'best condo' lists. It's just that unprecedented. The One Chicago development was first conceptualized in 2018 and accumulated lots of hype until eventually opening in 2021. First residents are now experiencing a downtown living experience unlike anything they've seen before. This sprawling tower stands 971 feet high, with thousands of square feet of amenities to be found across 77 floors. The suites themselves are rather large - there are only 77 available for purchase in the entire building. Options range from single-bedroom to multi-bedroom accommodations as large as 2,211 square feet. Should you be lucky enough to find one on the open market, expect a hefty price tag. Residency at One Chicago is reserved for those who have north of one million dollars to spend. The building's most expensive homes top $28 million.

The Pinnacle

Properly named 'The Pinnacle', the condo development at 21 E. Huron is at the very top of Chicago's real estate market. It's a well-deserved status considering the luxuries that come with residency. Amenities include a full health club and spa, an indoor pool, a sun deck, a private movie theater, and a business center. There are more than 200 units up for grabs across 49 stories, the uppermost of which consist of eight massive penthouses. These living spaces offer buyers an elevated lifestyle defined by class and large glass windows that look out onto the city skyline. Suites range between 1,300 and 5,400 square feet in size across the board, and there are one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and four-bedroom options available. Prospective buyers should be ready to shell out anywhere between $500,000 and $4,000,000 for their own slice of this paradise.

33 W. Ontario

Soaring 60 stories over the corner of Ontario and Dearborn Street, 33 W. Ontario has been a well-known address in downtown Chicago since its initial completion in 2003. Selection is a big reason for that; this building houses 363 units of varying size and layout, ranging between $200,000 studios and multi-million dollar four-bedroom suites. Although every owner has updated their space in one way or another, all share tall ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops as standard features. Oh, and amenities? They're plentiful here. 33 W. Ontario's rather high HOA fees afford residents many hotel-like privileges and spaces, including a pool, sundeck, state-of-the-art fitness center, and 24/7 door service.

2 E. Erie

2 E. Erie's 40 stories offer a different perspective of downtown Chicago than 33 W. Ontario does — even though they're just blocks away from each other. Completed in 2002, the building houses fewer total units (254) but still offers an array of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom options with similar high-end finishes. The biggest draw of this building is its location in the trendy River North neighborhood. Just steps away from some of the city's best restaurants, bars, and shopping spots, 2 E. Erie offers the ultimate in city living. Homes here vary in price between a few hundred thousand dollars and several million. Luckily, you'll enjoy equal access to the fitness room, party room, common rooftop deck, and countless other on-site amenities in every case.
