This penthouse apartment sets a new standard of rental luxury for the Chicago market.

For $45,000, you could purchase a Volvo V60 Cross Country, a Diamond Wave link bracelet from Sidney Garber, a luxury safari for three with Abercrombie & Kent... or you could rent (for one month) the penthouse at Old Town Park. For many high-wealth individuals, that is the ultimate luxury—to walk into a turnkey home where every last detail has already been considered. “There is not another apartment on the market in Chicago that offers this combination of space, design, amenities and sheer beauty,” says @properties listing agent Emily Santos. “The outdoor space is an unbelievable addition to an already extraordinary home.”

Developed by Onni Group as part of its LEVEL Furnished Living brand, the two-story abode includes 8,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, with four bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, an in-home elevator, floor-to-ceiling windows and a gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. The two private outdoor terraces (one on each level) includea pool, a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen and bar, plus multiple eating and lounge areas. As one would expect, the apartment has been thoughtfully finished and furnished by Kreel Creative Interiors with details like a floating staircase between the two floors, and a master bathroom with walls of travertine stone tile and a floating dual-sink vanity— all unheard of in a rental unit.

The apartment was developed for a tenant who plans to entertain and share this gorgeous space with plenty of friends. To that end, the main kitchen has a second catering kitchen cleverly hidden behind it, and the open concept includes
a family room, formal living and dining rooms with easy access to the terrace, and a raised entertainment lounge that’s the perfect place to make cocktails. After all, what’s the point of spending $45,000 if you can’t share the fun? 1140 N. Wells St., Floors 31 and 32
