What Is a Penthouse Condo in Chicago?
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.
Downtown Chicago is where you’ll find many of Chicago’s most spectacular and most luxurious penthouse condos for sale. Situated high above the bustling city streets, most high-rise penthouses in Chicago offer sprawling views of the downtown landscape and Lake Michigan, and of course more than enough living space as well. In fact, many luxury penthouses in Chicago have four to six bedrooms and the buildings also provide access to a wide-range of high-end lifestyle amenities that include a swimming pools, round the clock door and concierge service, state of the art fitness centers, heated garage parking, and so much more.
