55 E. Erie, Chicago, IL
55 East Erie is the third-tallest all-residential building in the United States (the top two spots are held by Trump World Tower in New York City, and 340 on the Park in Chicago.) A block away from the Magnificent Mile, this 56-story, 194-unit condominium tower boasts views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan. There are seven floors of split-story penthouses with express elevator service, and four so-called "Skyhomes," which are unique 4-story townhomes with their own elevators. 29 units are rented.
55 East Erie boasts a fitness center with towel service, a full-length lap pool, Jacuzzi, and locker rooms with saunas and steam rooms. Each piece of cardiovascular equipment has its own individual TV.
For the car-owning Chicagoan, there are 425 deeded parking spaces; those who prefer their own propulsion can store their bikes on-site as well. Professionals will appreciate the on-site dry cleaner. There is a hospitality room with full kitchen, 24-hour door staff, and on-site engineers and maintenance.
Among the other amenities offered are building-wide ultra-high-speed internet, emergency-use defibrillators, a book club, and an activities committee that arranges get-togethers to introduce residents to famous neighbors or watch big sporting events.
