Iconic Park Tower Home
There's nothing more Chicago than a Mag Mile address. But when that address is 800 N. Michigan Avenue, and you get to call the iconic Park Tower home, you're truly at the heart of it all. Designed by Lucien Lagrange Architects, the Park Tower residences sit atop the Park Hyatt Chicago in the Gold Coast, affording homeowners full access to the hotel's five-star amenities, including an indoor pool, a 24-hour fitness center and NoMI Spa. And with unit 4601, a 5,200-square-foot corner residence boasting 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a lake-facing terrace, you get the bragging rights to the building's hautest residence, too. A fashionable 10'x10' foyer leads to a large, open-concept living/dining space where, if you can pull your gaze away from the azure of Lake Michigan and panoramic views of the city skyline, it becomes apparent that no expense was spared on designer details and first-class finishes, including herringbone hardwood floors, a soft barrel ceiling, cove lighting and bespoke window treatments. The living room flaunts a statement fireplace and three flexible entertaining spaces, and links to a handsome study. The formal dining room finds definition from a slatted wall system and a gilded chandelier that was imported from Europe. Here, access is afforded to a 10'x13' corner terrace for an alfresco footprint overlooking the lake. The home's dine-in presentation kitchen stuns with walnut cabinetry, stone countertops and Viking/SubZero appliances, and connects to both a butler's pantry with an oversize wine fridge and a light-filled family room with a second fireplace and custom wall-to-wall built-ins that include a lovely WFH station. Past two spacious, secondary bedrooms with ensuite baths and a full laundry room, the home's private quarters present a massive primary suite that features a custom dressing room, a walk-in closet, a sitting area and a chic ensuite with a dual vanity, a soaking tub and a glass-encased shower. Marrying modern design with tempered character-and the white-glove conveniences of a hotel stay-800 N. Michigan Ave., unit 4601, is luxury Chicago living at its very best.
