Related Midwest’s Swanky Chicago Digs

April 11, 2013

luxury Chicago condosHow would you define luxurious living in Chicago? Two words: Related Midwest. For more than 25 years, Related Midwest has offered a strong and assorted collection of real estate properties in Chicago. The Midwest team practically established luxury residential developments dating back to the Playboy Mansion and the Mayfair. Today, with their stellar sustainable projects and continued innovation, Related Midwest remains a top residential real estate developer.

Related Midwest is opening their newest luxury rental property, 500 Lake Shore Drive, later this spring in the exceptional Streeterville neighborhood. The building will boast 47 floors and 500 individual units, ranging in size from studio to penthouse. The property will include a fitness center, a spa and sauna, a library, a club room, a game room, a coffee shop, an outdoor pool on the terrace level complete with grills and seating, a concierge and a business center. I know what you’re thinking, “Sounds great, but do they allow pets?” Fido gets to come along too, as the property will also have a doggy spa to pamper your spoiled rotten pooches.

Just a quick jaunt down the road, you will find another Midwest property, 840 North Lake Shore Drive. It was completed in 2004,and houses 73 units in 26 floors. The building, designed by Lucien Lagrange, is a remarkable achievement of French elegance. A proud green space summits the penthouse terrace level, and all condominiums, ranging from two to five bedrooms, enjoy their own terrace. Despite its vintage French appeal, the development is outfitted with the most modern of amenities, including a fitness center and a climate controlled wine storage facility. Not sold yet? This building was awarded as the Multi-family Residential Development of the Year!

If that’s still not swanky enough for you, I’d ask you to picture young Eloise, the mischievous children’s book character that lived a rather cushy lifestyle in New York’s Plaza Hotel. You too can mimic Eloise’s ritzy abode at the Related Midwest’s Park Tower property, located at 800 North Michigan Avenue. Here, they partnered with Hyatt Development Corporation to share this 67 story property, home to 117 custom designed condominiums and 263 hotel units. This is the absolute utmost in five-star living. It even has 21,000 square feet of upscale retail nirvana available in Emporio Armani, Botegga Venetta and Marlowe!

Of course, people can have varying views on their idea of luxury and elegance, one person’s opinion no better than the next. However, if I were presented with superior city-living, I would make absolutely sure that the firm offering it had the same commitment to excellence, financial strength, successful track record, impeccable taste and expertise as Related Midwest. It’s what they do best.
