Iconic Chicago Duplex Has Dramatic East Views, 1920s Details and Five-Star Perks

This stunning, three-bedroom, two-floor duplex at Tribune Tower Residences commands majestic views of the city skyline, the Chicago River and even the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse. Gorgeously appointed, the one-of-a-kind home centers around a breathtaking living/dining great room with soaring 18-foot ceilings, a private balcony, a fireplace, a service bar with built-in wine storage and multiple pairs of window-topped French doors surrounded by the building’s exquisite dimensional limestone tracery.

With gracious flow from the foyer and center gallery, the rooms are detailed with wide-plank white oak floors, art gallery walls and superb custom millwork and cabinetry. Off the dining area, a sleek moderne kitchen features an island, bar seating, plus top-quality SubZero, Wolf and Miele appliances.

On the upper level, the tranquil primary suite offers dual walk-in closets, an all-marble bath and sensational views. There is also a second bedroom suite on this floor, which could double as an office, with a great-room overlook. Formerly the home of the storied Chicago Tribune, the Tribune Tower Residences has preserved the architectural integrity and elegant glamour of the original, including flying buttresses and magnificent limestone detailing, and transformed the once-bustling media center into a lifestyle community of stunning sophistication.
