Stunning Chicago penthouse on the market at $4.75M

This grand penthouse pad is perched atop stately 6 North Michigan Avenue, a deluxe condominium tower situated in Chicago’s historic Michigan Boulevard district. Built over a century ago and designed by Richard Schmidt in 1899, the historic brick building was the tallest in Chicago, being topped with a 10-story tower, a pyramid, a temple and an 18-foot-tall weather vane shaped like a female figure. It used to be the HQ of the Montgomery Ward Company, meant to increase its clients’ trust, and also had a public observation deck.
