  1. I’m surprised to say this, but this one is not bad as these things go.

  2. Why isn’t this selling? Couldn’t be that blue wall stencil above the mirror, could it? Naaaahhh.

  3. LOL at trying to hide the cement pillar with that stupid chanel easel type thing

    The décor in here is waaaaaaaaaay too cluttered… put like 75% of that shit into storage and this place will look a lot more spacious

  4. If this place was staged properly it would be a much easier sell. This place desperately needs some area rugs to tone down the color variation in the wood floors. As sonies mentioned, it’s way too cluttered…and paint over that “art work” over the mirror.

  5. “put like 75% of that shit into storage”

    I think it’s more “take 75% of the ornamentation off the furniture”. There really isn’t that much stuff in the space, it’s just that the stuff overpowers the space.

    Nice that they have something in the washer–to show that it works, I guess??

  6. Needs to be staged with real people, real people that reflect the magnificent taste of the furnishings and accouterments!

  7. Its in a nice location. I agree that it needs a little staging magic because that furniture makes it look small with no dining table option. Assessments are also high especially with the lack of amenities i.e. exercise room, business center

  8. Crazily cluttered. I still would like to know why the big concrete thing is in the living room. I do like the floors though. Location is fine if you like River North.

  9. “I still would like to know why the big concrete thing is in the living room.”

    that would be a support column. buildings don’t just hold themselves up.

  10. I know for support, I guess I should have been more clear for captain obvious who is visiting us today, aka Marco. I’m wondering why big round cement things were necessary to support this structure. It cuts into your space, there are other ways to support buildings. Who wants a big cement thing in your living room, obstructing your view. I live in a high rise without a big round cement thing in my living room.

  11. “I’m wondering why big round cement things were necessary to support this structure.”

    [cap’n obvious]because that’s how the architect designed it. It could also have not-floor-to-ceiling windows, or a brick exterior, but that’s not the design [/cap’n obvious]

    Reinforced concrete construction is faster/cheaper than steel balloon, or cantilevered, or other reasonable options, no? Also other benefits–eg, better soundproofing between floors.

  12. Well I have floor to ceiling windows without a giant round thing in my living room. But if it’s cheaper to build giant round things that people try to cover with Chanel art, then that is the answer. It’s cheaper.

  13. GoneFishin – perhaps you should be a little more specific with your comments and you wouldn’t got the most obvious answer. the column is in the corner. it’s not like it’s protruding that far into the space.

    “Well I have floor to ceiling windows without a giant round thing in my living room.”
    but do you have a scenario such as this with corner floor to ceiling windows? something needs to be there otherwise each floor would be cantilevered which would be extremely costly. your columns are most like framed in, hidden behind a wall.

  14. Marco, your first stab at answering a question doesn’t have to be the most obvious answer. If someone asks you why are you eating….must you answer “because I’m hungry” when you certainly know there is a reason why someone is asking a question that an answer should go beyond the obvious answer. I hope we can end this conversation because I’m beyond bored.
