The Appeal of Living in a Penthouse
Whether a penthouse is on the top floor of a six-story mid-rise or the 50th floor of a skyscraper, it is considered the most desirable condominium in the building. One reason is the view offered from an expansive outdoor space, set-back from the outer walls, to create large,private terraces, whereas other units on lower floors may just have a balcony.
In keeping with the exclusivity, most Chicago luxury penthouses have keyed elevator landings with direct access to the apartment’s foyer, and often the ride is non-stop from the lobby to the residence. Although luxury penthouse apartments became popular in the 1920s, after the notoriety of the roof top residence at the Plaza Hotel overlooking Central Park, recent demand and buyers’ willingness to pay premium prices, encouraged developers to design buildings with multiple high-floor penthouses. Ironically, offering three or more penthouses in a building only increases the flurry of competition, and, often, they are the first luxury condos to sell in Chicago’s new developments, driving prices to soar along with the floor heights.
