Chicago

luxury guide

Chicago is a lively and pleasurable city to live in, exceptionally culturally rich and full of commercial activity. As the world capital of modern architecture, even before New York, Chicago boasts some of the most iconic skyscrapers in the United States, such as the Willis Tower, which with its 433 meters was once the tallest building in the world. Moreover, it is precisely in Chicago that the very first skyscraper was built in 1884. Chicago has excellent cultural offerings including numerous museum such as the prestigious Art Institute with its impressive collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Surrealist art. Another attraction is the Millenium Park with its Cloud Gate, a steel bean-shaped sculpture that has become one of the symbols of the city. The luxury real estate market in Chicago is rich and varied. The city’s downtown zone is the most sought after area for luxury properties. In the heart of downtown is the Loop, the most important business district in the US after Midtown Manhattan, as well as the area north of Michigan Avenue dedicated to high end shopping, known as the Magnificent Mile, which also features numerous prestigious condos and lofts inside striking Art Deco structures. Other prestigious neighborhoods include the Gold Coast, located along the suggestive shores of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, offering exclusive, seductive options: it is difficult to resist the sophistication of the highly sought after Astor Street District. And living near the shores of a beautiful urban life is certainly appealing for those looking for a quality of life atypical of a metropolis.
