For Boomers, they’ve often accumulated the money to leave the staid life of the burbs and start on life’s journey in the city—a fitting place to do so.
Living in the heart of the city is convenient in itself. Dining, entertainment, shopping and more are generally just a few steps away, as is transportation to get anyway further than walking distance. There are also a number of Chicago condos that are quite opportune for Boomers and empty nesters at this point in their life, with additional conveniences and amenities that fit right in with their lifestyle.
A few buildings that cater to this group include:
Lincoln Park 2550: The amenities in this building offer everything you need from morning until night, like a full-service fitness facility, a dog exercise area, outdoor lounging space, club lounge and private movie theater. The elegance and panache of this building also makes it ideal for middle-aged buyers looking for a convenient building that doesn’t feel too “young.”
Trump Tower: The modern luxury of Trump Tower is apparent in the name alone, and these downtown Chicago condos are a way of life, not merely an address. Without stepping outside the building, you’ll find a Michelin-rated restaurant, an internationally acclaimed spa and an outdoor terrace with unbelievable vistas of the beautiful surrounding city. It’s location puts its residents close to their offices downtown, plus Trump Tower is adjacent to the Magnificent Mile, and has a serene riverwalk just steps from the front door.
Ritz-Carlton Residences: The great thing about Chicago luxury condos is that they rarely skimp on space, so you don’t have to give up the square footage you might be leaving behind in the ‘burbs. Homes in the Ritz-Carlton Residences range from 1,400 to 6,000 square feet, and the building includes features like a full-floor private club, a screening room, a state-of-the-art facility and much more.
With buildings like these that can emulate the space and luxury of a suburban home, but add the service and accessibility of city life, it’s no wonder that more and more Baby Boomers are making their way into city of Chicago zip codes.
