Chicago's building boom keeps booming with luxury towers on every horizon, but single-family homes keep pace with their own over-the-top amenities.
Planned for delivery in 2019, Superior House in River North has outdoor spaces that will provide spectacular views.

Superior Advantage
A luxurious new glass-and-steel condo building will transform River North.

Every single unit will have a corner view at Superior House, a modern mid-rise in development at the intersection of Superior and Sedgwick streets that’s slated for delivery next year. Designed for the high-end buyer with refined detailing by Gary Lee Partners, the units—four per floor, with just two on the penthouse level—will be outfitted with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops and floor-to-ceiling windows. Amenities include a gorgeous 12th-floor sky deck with an elegant lounge, plus an outdoor kitchen, seating and a fire pit. Units range from 1,770 to 3,670 square feet and start at just over $1 million. “Superior House is modern and dramatic but also tasteful and inviting,” says @properties Executive Vice President of Development Sales Cyndy Salgado “The design, finishes and amenities set a new standard for luxury in River North.” 366 W. Superior St.

Sleek in the City
A new development in Lincoln Park brings a luxe vibe to the North Side.

When a chic and modern new condo development pops up in Lincoln Park, we’re intrigued. And when it’s on a bustling section of Lincoln Avenue, our curiosity level goes through the roof. Case in point: the sleek new Lincoln Crossing development, an eight-unit, extra-wide boutique condo building from Mavrek Development. With building-wide interior design by Elizabeth Krueger Design, master baths have floating vanities with motion-activated floor lighting and custom backlit mirrors, while the master bedrooms offer large custom walk-in closets. But we’re most in love with the modern kitchens, which feature stunning chandeliers (Fairfax eight-light chandelier, $2,010, by Avenue Lighting at Lightology), wine refrigerators (Ricotta 24-inch single-zone beverage centre, $999, by Silhouette at Grand Appliance) and kitchen cabinets (by Orchard Hill at Top it off with private terraces for each unit and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, and this just might be the coolest building outside of downtown. 2474 N. Lincoln Ave., prices from $799,000, Compass

A multimillion-dollar renovation casts a new light on an ’80s-era high-rise.

“There’s not a bad view to be found,” says Eugenie Terrace on the Park Executive Manager Sara Alvey about the stunning vistas at the luxurious residential rental complex in Lincoln Park. After an extensive renovation, the ’80s-era high-rise has been remade with an elegant wood-paneled lobby; a top-of-the-line fitness center; and a top-floor sky lounge complete with outdoor swimming pool, grilling station and sundeck. Sporting original floor-to-ceiling bay windows, the apartments ($1,910 to $3,835 per month) have also been revamped with new flooring, sleek bathrooms and contemporary kitchens with quartz countertops. Most spectacular is the building’s premier residence: a 3,000-square-foot corner penthouse on the 44th floor with two family rooms and wraparound views. “We cherry-picked everything that we loved,” Alvey says. “It has been a very cool experience to see the public responding positively to it.” 1730 N. Clark St.
