Views! Views! Views!!
For the Chicago real estate buyer who craves a condo with a view — here’s your February update.
I have been trolling these properties for one of my clients, and she settled on a lovely unit at 1160 S Michigan. It’s at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Roosevelt, just behind Trader Joe’s and next to Yolk — the building has the benefit of being “in the thick of things” — perfect for those who love to leave their home and grab a cab in a jiffy.
The northeast view from the unit is spectacular, and to get a 2100 square foot unit at $800,000 was a terrific deal!
Here are some pictures of the condo, which closed 2 weeks ago at $00,000:
Love it? Don’t Despair!
There are lots of condos available around $1MM if you love a great view — the rest of this post is dedicated to what’s available now, and I’ve included my favorites, too.

My Favorite Chicago Condos (for sale now) With Great Views
Here are my favorite condos for sale today (2 – 3 bedrooms) that offer great views for around $1,000,000:
I love this building – go east on Randolph as far as you can go – take a left and you’re there! They allow dogs, the pool and fitness room are great, and they have tennis court and a lovely park area!
This is a smaller 3 bedroom, but it’s one of my favorite views in the city.
The price has been reduced since it was listed 130 days ago – the competing listing one floor below sold at $1,050,000, and it also had lovely upgrades. My client was considering this one – it’s larger and has more upgrades than the 1160 S Michigan unit, but it wasn’t worth the extra money for her needs.
Nadine did a lovely job capturing the views from this condo, don’t you think?
This 2 bedroom split floor plan (1770 square feet) offers a different view than the South Loop condos – parking is extra, and the building includes a health club and indoor pool.
This Helmut Jahn glass building was completed in 2008 – this 2 bedroom/2.5 bath 1536 square foot unit offers a recessed terrace, sun deck, and indoor dog run. Parking is extra.
I love this building! Fantastic indoor pool, fitness center, roof deck, and each unit has a wide terrace overlooking Lake Shore Drive.
Margaret Carlson’s listing at 1300 Lake Shore Drive has some interesting upgrades! This view is phenomenal, both to the north AND south the East Lake Shore Drive. With a private entrance and 2200 square feet, this is a terrific unit for someone craving a great Lake Michigan view!
