What Does a $13.5 Million Penthouse Look Like? 840 N. Lake Shore Drive in the Gold Coast

This 6-bedroom penthouse in 840 N. Lake Shore Drive in the Gold Coast came on the market in April 2019. (Did we decide that this area was Gold Coast and not Streeterville?)

Built in 2007, the building has 72 units on just 26 floors and a parking garage.

This is a true penthouse on the 26th floor with 8800 square feet of interior space and 1135 square feet of outdoor living including a 90×9 terrace and other smaller terraces.

It’s apparently all on one level.

It has multiple exposures including the Lake and city views as well as Navy Pier.

The listing says this unit was bought as raw space and custom designed.

It has 12 foot ceilings and multiple living and dining areas.

The 6 bedrooms are en suite with two half bathrooms.

There’s a great room in the rotunda.

The listing describes the kitchen, with white cabinets and counter tops as a “custom Boffi eat-in kitchen with a showcase wine cellar.”

It has central air, washer/dryer in the unit and 3-car garage parking is included.

It has come on the market at $13.5 million which makes it among the most expensive condos currently on the market in the city.

With both city and lake views, is this condo the best of all worlds?

Timothy Salm at Jameson Sotheby’s has the listing. See the pictures here.
