REAL ESTATE: A site to behold
by Andrew Davis, Windy City Times

—Address: 340 W. Superior St., PH2, in the River North neighborhood

—Market price: $1.4 million

—Details: This 2,698-square-foot unit (with two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms) has everything a penthouse condo in this neighborhood should have: highly upgraded finishes, floor-to-ceiling windows, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, electronic closets, two-sided gas fireplace with black granite surround and mosaic tile, and a refrigerated built-in wine rack.

However, there are some items that have to be seen to be believed at this River North condo (which can come furnished if that's what the buyer wants). For example, while the unit is 2,700 square feet, the terrace is another 1,200 square feet and runs the length of the condo, providing an amazing 180-degree view of the city. In addition, part of the terrace is heated, meaning that the owner can entertain in the dead of winter.

One unique item is the Maya Romanoff glass-bead wall covering in one of the bedrooms. (Even the multiple photos I took don't do it justice.) Another, interestingly enough, are the toilets, which, in the words of real-estate agent Millie Rosenbloom, "do everything but wipe you." They wash the user from the front and behind, and the person can choose between "oscillate" and "pulsate." Sometimes, it's just the little (but still expensive) things.

The terrace "is the wow factor," according to Rosenbloom. "This is the main selling point of this place."

Rosenbloom added that unit "covers a pretty broad demographic. It's for the person who wants to be in the downtown area—maybe [someone] who works downtown and wants to stay here, and not necessarily drive home to home [in the suburbs]. There's also the person who works in the financial district—the younger person who wants to entertain a lot; this couldn't be a more perfect place to entertain. Guests could easily access this area from the suburbs or the South Loop.

"Also, there's the couple who lives in the city and wants to be in the heart of it all."

In addition, the building features a 24-hour doorman, a grocery store and two parking spaces are included. Also, there's a well-equipped fitness room that offers a panoramic view of Chicago. There are only four units on the penthouse level.

Interested persons should contact Baird & Warner's Millie Rosenbloom at 312-980-1517 and .
