For those who crave luxury, iconic architecture, and every modern amenity imaginable, Tribune Tower Residences truly offers the best of all worlds. Located at the intersection of the Magnificent Mile and Chicago River, the Gothic Revival landmark and famous former headquarters of the Chicago Tribune is being transformed into a diverse array of distinctive, one-of-a-kind luxury condominium residences in the city’s most premier location.
“This building is absolutely timeless, evoking the artistry and craftsmanship of the great architecture of Europe,” says Sales Director Jeanne Martini. “And now that it has been fitted with all new mechanicals, all new windows, and the most exquisite finishes on the market, everything within is state-of-the-art.
Tribune Tower’s Gothic Revival design was the winning result of an international architecture competition in 1922 that sought to erect not only the most beautiful building in Chicago but one that would rival the most famous structures in the world. Embedded in the façade are stones and relics from the most significant monuments and battlefields—including Bunker Hill, Omaha Beach, Westminster Abbey, St. Peter’s Basilica, and The Great Pyramid of Giza. The building’s iconic “crown” is an homage to the 13th century Butter Tower of Notre Dame Cathedral in Rouen, France.
“Imagine walking into the historic lobby as your front door, and knowing, ‘Wow, this is my home!’” says Martini. Very few buildings can capture that feeling.
Tribune Tower Residences offers 162 luxury condominiums with over 56 distinctive one to four-plus bedroom floor plans priced from the $900,000s to more than $7 million. Its proximity to the city’s arts, culture, retail, and dining destinations makes it the ideal residence for the cultural connoisseur or downtown professional. Martini says it is the ultimate urban sanctuary for buyers who seek historic architecture, state-of-the-art finishes, and the amenities of a fine luxury hotel.
Residents will have access to four levels of amenities, including a luxury spa amenity with steam rooms, saunas, private treatment room, state-of-the-art fitness center, all-seasons pool, driving range simulator, co-working lounge, meeting rooms, entertainment areas, and event spaces complete with a bar and catering kitchen. A third floor courtyard opens to a sprawling private outdoor oasis—a rare luxury in the city. The pool terrace with outdoor grilling stations and sun deck provides warm-weather enjoyment for residents.
Far above it all, residents can take in panoramic views and beautifully framed sunrises and sunsets from the incomparable Crown Terrace and Lounge Amenity. With indoor chef ’s kitchen, outdoor grilling and fresh herb garden, the 25th floor Crown Amenity offers an intimate setting surrounded by the stunning flying buttresses and elegant tracery iconic to Chicago’s skyline.
In addition to a 24-hour door staff and personnel, Martini says the building will offer residents concierge personal coordination services such as travel assistance, on-site car wash, dry cleaning pickup and delivery, and even grocery delivery to your front door. “In the era of COVID-19, a maintenance-free lifestyle and concierge services are more attractive than ever,” Martini explains. “You need a light bulb changed? There is a 24/7 staff to respond. It is a carefree lifestyle. Life at Tribune Tower Residences will feel like living in a five-star hotel.”
In addition to its location, amenities and services, Martini adds that the building’s architectural pedigree has been especially attractive for not only already city dwellers, but North Shore, Hinsdale, and Barrington area buyers. “They can have it all here. It is absolutely a one-of-a-kind building. There is nothing else like it.”
