Talk about taking housing to new heights. The top-floor penthouse apartment in Chicago’s Trump International Hotel and Tower is hitting the sale block with a $32 million price tag. Named for its billionaire developer-turned-political commentator Donald Trump, the mixed-use luxury condo and hotel high rise is the Western Hemisphere’s tallest residential building, making its 89th floor apartment America’s highest home.
Not only that, with a $32 million price tag, the lofty abode is now the Chicago areas’s most expensive publicly listed home for sale and one of the most expensive listings ever to grace the Multiple Listing Services in the Midwest.
“There really is nothing comparable to this property in Chicago or the United States: It is one of the largest condominiums all on one floor, which makes it very desirable,” says Chezi Rafaeli, an agent with Coldwell Banker Gold Coast and the Trump penthouse’s listing broker.
Let’s see if billionaire buyers literally seeking the height of luxury living at a record-breaking Midwestern price agree.
