Get a Rare Skylight in a Condo in this 2-Bedroom at 310 S. Michigan in the Loop

310 s michigan #2 approved

This 2-bedroom in the Metropolitan Tower at 310 S. Michigan across from Millennium Park in the Loop came on the market in June 2016.

It’s on the 23rd floor, which is an amenities floor with a building terrace and grills.

The listing says there are only 3 units on this floor and this one has a unique layout.

At 2000 square feet, it has a south facing balcony from the living room and kitchen with views of the park and the Lake.

But the most unique feature is a 15×15 “media room” which also has a skylight.

Skylights are rare in condo high rises. I don’t recall cribbing about another high rise unit with that feature.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and dark cabinets.

It has the other features buyers look for including central air and washer/dryer in the unit. Parking is extra at $42,500, and doesn’t have to sell with the unit.

This unit is listed $149,500 below the 2008 price.

Is this a deal?

Michael Gentile at @Properties has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. Love the building but the price is insane (Even more insane in 08)

  4. Wouldn’t the “amenities” floor be a higher traffic / noise floor? Folks are there the PAR-TAY! It probably doesn’t occur to them that anyone lives there. And what must the current occupants be paying in rent to cover the owners mortgage and those assessments?!

  5. The agent should have had enough sense to at least put the blow dryer, and work out equipment away. The photos do not make me wanna jump into the computer screen and pay $830k.

  7. Only way that place is worth $830k is if the terrace pictured was private and owned by the unit.

    Otherwise, no way.
