It’s no secret that Chicago’s River North neighborhood is packed with upscale condo buildings of all shapes and sizes, which is exactly why it’s so difficult to narrow down a list of the hottest places to live in the area. But even despite its one-of-a-kind inventory of ultra-elite addresses, some River North locations truly stand apart from the rest of the pack, and for our money, here’s a look at 5 of those particular buildings:
Trump Tower - 401 N. Wabash
Easily the most recognizable condo building in River North, Trump Tower really needs no introduction. As one of the tallest buildings in Chicago and home to not only some of the most lavish condominium residences on the market, but also a world-class hotel, there’s not much to gripe about when it comes to living inside the first-class condo building at 401 North Wabash.
Ritz Carlton Residences - 118 E. Erie
Like Trump Tower, the Ritz Carlton Residences at 118 E. Erie also provide hotel-style amenities that are hard to overlook when searching for the perfect downtown Chicago condo. Along with that, the location of the Ritz Carlton Residences is right off the Magnificent Mile, providing an authentic living experience right in the heart of the city.
The Fordham - 25 E. Superior
Standing 50 stories high and home to 224 luxury condominium residences, there’s no doubt The Fordham, located at 25 E. Superior, is one of the most distinguished condominium towers here in River North. The Amenities here are right on par with any other luxury high-rise in the area, and the building’s location puts residents within walking distance to so many of the best restaurants, stores, and entertainment venues in all of Downtown Chicago.
The Montgomery - 500 W. Superior
One of the more unique condo conversions in Chicago real estate history, this former 28-story office tower was once the home of Montgomery Ward & Co. but has since been re-done to house some of the most expensive condominium residences in all of River North. Although you might not find the same level of lifestyle amenities as you will inside Trump Tower or the Ritz Carlton Residences, the living spaces here are equally impressive to say the least.
The Pinnacle - 21 E. Huron
Overlooking the historic St. James Cathedral in Downtown Chicago, The Pinnacle is the epitome of luxury in River North. Designed by the renowned Lucien Lagrange, there’s a sense of elegance about The Pinnacle that’s hard to deny, and when you combine all the lavishly designed interior spaces with the building’s first-rate common amenities, it doesn’t get much better than living at 21 E. Huron, right in the middle of the River North neighborhood.
Overlooking historic St. James Cathedral, The Pinnacle continues the traditions established by The Fordham, a block to the east. The new 48-story tower, designed by Lucien Lagrange Architects, offers two, three and four-bedroom residences from 1,300 to 5,400 square feet, including eight penthouses. The Pinnacle's lavishly appointed homes feature marble entries, marble master baths, whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, gourmet kitchens, floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive balconies. Additionally, The Pinnacle has the array of amenities and services that have become a Fordham Company hallmark: a health club, spa, indoor pool and sundeck, entertainment suite and terrace, private theater and business center with conference facilities. - See more at: http://www.highrises.com/chicago/the-pinnacle-condos/#sthash.Jbbsevgx.dpuf
