River North Condos With The Best Views

Imagine waking up every morning to a breathtaking view of downtown Chicago, where the skyline becomes a part of your personal living space. Not a bad way to start the day, right? Well, for many home buyers, having a condo with a view isn't simply about looking out the windows; it's about experiencing the city from a unique perspective. And that's exactly what many units inside these highly desirable condo buildings in River North have to offer.

One Chicago

One Chicago is a newer addition to the city's skyline, but it's already iconic in more ways than one. The condo development was designed to cater to a luxurious breed of buyer with panoramic windows, large open-concept units, and an abundance of floor space. Those are all hard things to find in a downtown dwelling, let alone in one place. This building just aims to exceed standards however it can. It's much higher than other condos - and most structures in the city, for that matter - at 969 feet tall. All of that height affords enough room for 79 floors worth of suites and amenities. And that's just the first tower. One Chicago is actually made up of two buildings connected by a suspended 10-story podium. Residences don't start until the 44th level, so everyone is guaranteed a great view from their unit as well.

 Trump Tower Chicago

It's hard not to notice Trump Tower Chicago when walking anywhere downtown, and that's because it's one of the city's tallest high-rises. The hotel-condo complex was completed in 2009 by world-renowned architect Adrian Smith of Skidmore. A completely glass 1,300-plus foot facade encompasses 96 floors of over 735 living spaces and reflects light beautifully on sunny summer days. It also affords residents amazing views in every direction.

This place holds prime real estate in the city, set directly against the Chicago River and a block West of the Magnificent Mile. That means easy access to a variety of shops, entertainment venues, and restaurants, although you'll also enjoy having a restaurant, bar, spa, and other amenities inside the building itself too.

 The Montgomery

Thanks to a rich history and a prominent River North location, The Montgomery is a presence to be known both in the Chicago real estate market and also the greater architectural scene. The original Montgomery Ward tower was completed in the early 20th century and was one of the tallest in Chicago at the time. That 394-foot height got cut after the removal of a pyramid top and sculpture in 1947. Converted into condos in the early 2000s, The Montgomery now comprises 28 floors of 250 modern luxury suites. While every living space is defined by open layouts and high ceilings, penthouses on levels 24 to 28 enjoy even taller 13.5-foot tall ceilings. Paired with large windows, the view from top floors is nothing short of incredible. 

Park Tower

Park Tower isn't just any old tower - it's an incredibly tall one. This bad boy is over 800 feet high, giving top-floor occupants a view like something out of a postcard. The 67 levels consist of 123 units that range in layout and size. One thing they all share is massive windows - thoughtfully included as part of the building's conversion into condos in the 1970sFun fact that only architects would care about: Chicago's Park Tower is one of the world's tallest buildings to be clad with architectural precast concrete. That's what makes the exterior so unique and visually striking. With a great location on the lakefront, gorgeous views are given here. Residents take in spectacular sights of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan day and night. And with the building's close proximity to popular neighborhoods like the Gold Coast and Streeterville, there's always something exciting going on nearby.

Waldorf Astoria Chicago

The Waldorf Astoria brand is synonymous with class and high-end living. In Chicago, its hallmark hotel is both of those things with an emphasis on the 'high' part. The 60-story tower's 600-plus foot height provides all 51 luxury condominiums on its upper floors with stunning panoramic views. Interiors are adorned with the finest finishes and further defined by 10-12-foot ceilings. Waldorf Astoria Chicago was designed as a multi-purpose development by renowned architect Lucien Lagrange in 2008. It offers a luxurious lifestyle to say the least; residents get access to virtually everything hotel guests do, including an on-site spa, wellness center, and restaurant.
