Full Floor Living Instead of a Single Family Home: 1142 S. Michigan Overlooking Grant Park


This full floor unit in 1142 S. Michigan overlooking Grant Park in the South Loop came on the market in September 2016.

This boutique building was converted into condos in 2000 and has just 8 units, with a heated attached garage.

It has high ceilings and crown molding along with 2 fireplaces.

The listing says it has a “state of the art” kitchen with white cabinets, luxury stainless steel appliances and a blue kitchen island with white stone counter tops.

This unit has all the features condo buyers look for including central air, washer/dryer in an actual laundry room and 1-car parking.

I don’t believe the building has any amenities or a doorman.

But this unit does have unobstructed east views of Grant Park and several exposures.

Is this a good single family home alternative?

Randy McGhee at @Properties has the listing. See the pictures and floor plan here.

  2. I am sure I could make do here but for the money I would look elsewhere.

    Finishes are high end looking for sure but not a fan of the layout of the kitchen. Sink seems too far from the stove. Why wasn’t plumbing run to the kitchen island? Also not a fan of the fact that the outdoor living space can only be accessed from bedroom #2.

  3. If I recall correctly I looked at the top floor Unit of this building not too long ago – it had some beautiful outdoor space.

    This place has got some character and is huge – but being that low and close to Roosevelt and Michigan is going to be noisy. I also don’t think having the red line right around the corner is a great idea – – a lot of riff raff around there and in the jewel parking lot.

    At this price point id probably shell out a little bit more and get a 3 bed in one of the museum park towers.
