DOWNTOWN — A half-floor penthouse near the top of Trump International Hotel & Tower just hit the market at $12.7 million, a price that's among the highest in the city.
The four-bedroom, 6,850-square-foot condo is now on the public market after being quietly shopped for $13 million. The 87th-floor home includes 16-foot-tall ceilings, heated bathroom floors, a five-car garage, and floor-to-ceiling views to the north, south, east and west.
"From the moment you enter the dramatic foyer, it is clear this penthouse is a one of a kind," broker Chezi Rafaeli of Coldwell Banker, who is handling the sale, wrote to clients in March.
At $12.7 million, the Trump listing trails only the unbuilt $17 million Vista penthouse and another asking $12.95 million at 9 W. Walton St. as the most expensive condominium for sale in Chicago. The condo paid more than $114,000 in property taxes and $8,751 in monthly assessments last year.
The last Chicago home to sell for at least $12 million was a $16 million full-floor Waldorf Astoria penthouse sold in December by billionaire hedge fund manager Ken Griffin. Two condos off Michigan Avenue owned by actor Vince Vaughn are under contract for a collective $12.7 million.
Trump Tower has drawn notoriety for its sign and controversial developer, but also is home to some of the most famous people living in Chicago. Blackhawks star Patrick Kane listed his Trump condo for $2.15 million in July, while former Bulls star Derrick Rose and comedian Steve Harvey respectively own and rent in the building.
Property records show an Ohio trust benefiting resident Jean Michelle Gross paid $5.85 million in 2012 for the newly listed penthouse. Check the slideshow above or scroll down below for more looks at it:
