ABOUT

4 BEDS  |  4.2 BATHS  |  4,180 SF LIVING AREA   Located high up in the iconic Metropolitan Tower, apartment 2501 has a distinct advantage when it comes to views. Many of the most iconic lakefront landmarks; Millennium Park,  Navy Pier, the Art Institute, Buckingham Fountain, the Cultural Mile district of Michigan Avenue, Museum Campus and more all do their part. This high-style two-level home is in the center of the Loop and has an ever-changing view of the city and Lake Michigan. The unique nature of the home coupled with the rare experience of this level of outdoor space in the center of Chicago creates something very special.    Craftsmanship and elegance are evident from the first look. This level of elaborate custom architectural millwork and woodwork is truly remarkable and blends a European vibe in a contemporary space. Complete with a collection of four magnificent fireplaces the look is unique, warm and inviting. Grand in scale with large rooms throughout, the home presents two fully engaging levels of living space.   Abundant light and visually connected spaces featuring high-quality materials and finishes deliver the impact. An expansive entry with limestone floors and elaborate ceiling moldings opens to a large-scale dining space with 12-foot ceilings framed by hand-painted Gracie wall coverings, views of the city, intricate millwork and a shoulder-height soft white marble fireplace. Views of the dining space, library, living room and kitchen are in full view making this a unique space visually. The elegant details of the descending staircase to the lower level are a perfect finish.   The living room is perfectly appointed in stunning detail with the city and Lake Michigan as the backdrop. A significant fireplace anchors the room showcasing high ceilings, massive windows, stunning views and a rare double Tray ceiling design. Old world style is evident in the elegant library. In oak, the room features Chevron patterned floors, an impressive coffered ceiling, elaborate detailing and built-in shelving extending the full length of two walls. Sensational views from this room include Buckingham fountain.   The custom kitchen, breakfast area, and bar design are Christopher Peacock. All cabinetry is in solid walnut and with signature hardware and hand-painted lacquer finish with Fine Paints of Europe. A 5-burner LaCornue range and custom polished nickel hood, Subzero refrigerator and freezer. An impressive Waterstone faucet and honed Colorado Lincoln marble countertops. The perfect adjoining room features seating for casual dining, and a full bar finished with an antique mirror bar backsplash and custom-polished brass bar countertop.     From the main area, the striking staircase leads to a floor of ensuite bedrooms, a wet bar, a laundry room, a custom closet by Christopher Peacock and the main terrace entrance. The nearly 1700 square feet of outdoor space is directly above Michigan Avenue and is most certainly a rare city experience.   The primary bedroom suite is front-facing and provides stunning lake views, an ornate corner fireplace, a splendid spa bathroom with double vanity, custom cabinetry, a steam shower, jetted oversized tub with an additional private terrace entrance. A second large front-facing ensuite bedroom is equally grand with identical views and fully customized double closets at entry.    An opulent dressing room with custom built-in cabinets, an island, cubbies, and desk by Christopher Peacock in solid walnut with signature Audrey hardware and hand-painted lacquer finish. Elegant quartzite countertops in magenta ice and a trio of chandeliers by Restoration Hardware. Set of four discreet locking drawers lined in velvet by Dedar Milano.    Appointed with Savant automation for one-touch operation on the master pad or app, the home instantly comes to life. The resident-level-only elevator access opens directly at your front door on two levels. Onsite management, Amazon delivery pods, 24/7 doorman staff, ample storage, community event space, fitness center, and overnight guest suites.   Designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst & White, the Metropolitan Tower was named the Straus Building when completed in 1924. Located in Chicago’s Cultural Mile District of The Loop, The Metropolitan Tower cuts quite the image in the world-famous Chicago skyline.    An Exceptional Value. An Exceptional Location.

The Loop

“Iconic” is a term reserved for districts like the Loop. Considered the heart of Chicago and the city’s official downtown area, the Loop is abuzz with iconic Chicago attractions, historic architecture, river cruises, Millennium Park, the Chicago Riverwalk, a vibrant theatre district, plus major dining and shopping along State Street. The Loop is also home to one of the most important financial districts in the country. 

THE LOOP

Residents Love: 

  • Living in the city center near shopping, dining, and cultural landmarks
  • Having every single train line through their neighborhood 
  • Being surrounded by stunning lake views and architectural wonders 

“Iconic” is a term reserved for districts like the Loop. Considered the heart of Chicago and the city’s official downtown area, the Loop is abuzz with iconic Chicago attractions, historic architecture, river cruises, Millennium Park, the Chicago Riverwalk, a vibrant theatre district, plus major dining and shopping along State Street. The Loop is also home to one of the most important financial districts in the country. 

Living in The Loop 

Home Types

Since The Loop is primarily a business district, new construction condos, lofts, and high-rises lining Millennium Park make up the majority of housing choices. Also part of the Loop, the New East Side is a special residential section amid the downtown energy with green space and high-rise living. 

Affordability Factor 

Despite its popularity and central downtown location, housing in The Loop remains competitive with other neighborhoods in the city. 

A Night Out 

On weekends and weeknights, sections of the Loop can quiet down after the business crowd leaves. For a night out, try a classy steak dinner at Prime & Provisions, the mussels at Fisk & Co. in the Hotel Monaco, or the wiener schnitzel at The Berghoff. After dinner, you’ll want to head for a show in Theatre District, which is always buzzing with Tony Award-winning shows and world premieres, at the Auditorium Theatre, the Cadillac Palace Theatre, and the Nederlander Theatre.

The Perfect Sunday 

For the most iconic Chicago experience, spend your Sunday seeing the city from the river. Walk along the award-winning Chicago Riverwalk, a pedestrian-only pathway lined with great waterfront restaurants, the McCormick Bridgehouse, and the Chicago River Museum. Take in the mind-blowing digital art display Art on theMART. Or, you might also want to view the city from an architecture river cruise, like the Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruise aboard Chicago’s First Lady Cruises. Another option is to head to the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park, where you’ll find legendary music festivals like the Chicago Blues Festival, Chicago Jazz Festival, and a free summer music series and film series. Right next door, you can grab the kids and rock climb, skate, and play at whimsical Maggie Daley Park. 

Your Commute 

You’ll find a steady stream of buses, trains, cabs, and rideshares shuttling people in and out of the Loop. There are 11 Metra lines that all make their final stops in Chicago's Loop and five Metra stations. All eight CTA train lines offer service in the Loop. By train, you’re 34 minutes to McCormick Place, 29 minutes to Merchandise Mart, and 10 minutes to Union Station. And as one of Chicago’s most bike-friendly areas, the Loop offers one of Chicago's first barrier-protected bike lanes on Dearborn Avenue. The Lakefront Trail also offers a gorgeous backdrop for a ride into the Loop. The Loop is easily accessible by car, thanks to a network of major interstates and highways feeding directly to the Loop. 

Landmarks 

You will be right in the heart of all of the city’s most celebrated cultural landmarks in the Loop. The Cultural Mile is a stretch of Michigan Avenue that begins at the Chicago River and ends at Roosevelt Boulevard. This stretch includes the Orchestra Hall, The Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, Grant Park, Auditorium Theater, the Fine Arts Building, the Theater District, the grand Marshall Field and Company Building, and more. At the Millennium Park Campus, you’ll find the famous Cloud Gate (a.k.a. “Bean”), Crown Fountain, the tranquil Lurie Garden, and the Pritzker Pavilion. The Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) can also be found in The Loop.
