I recently wrote about the lifestyle factor that plays into living in one of Chicago’s most famed new construction buildings, Trump Tower. But many Chicago real estate buildings are offering more than just a place to live—they are also creating a way of life for their residents by way of the Chicago lifestyle.
The Chicago lifestyle has several facets. It’s a standard of living, with the city’s unique real estate, sports, culture, hospitals, theater and food all contributing. The Chicago lifestyle allows residents to take in the city’s many cultural offerings, thrive in business as the city becomes a global marketplace, and at the end of the day, have many conveniences right at your fingertips.
Chicago Culture Set Apart from the Rest
The Chicago lifestyle means there’s always something new to experience. Many Chicago real estate options put residents within walking distance of the finest entertainment, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, one of America’s “big five.”
Chicago is also home to the Art Institute, one of the best museums in the country, and a bevy of fine restaurants. Among the fine dining experiences is Alinea, one of the world’s most famous restaurants from chef Grant Achatz. In Chicago theater, the Steppenwolf Theatre Company has become the nation’s premiere theatre ensemble, with accolades that include 9 Tony awards. And the Lyric Opera (one of the world’s greatest) runs from October thru March, assuring there is plenty to do even in winter months.
Chicago Real Estate Becoming a Lifestyle
The Elysian Residences in the Gold Coast embody the Chicago lifestyle.
Chicago new construction buildings have aimed to offer not only properties with coveted square footage, the finest finishes and top-of-the-line appliances, but also a way of simplifying residents’ lives through amenities and services.
The Gold Coast’s Elysian
closed more than $30 million in Chicago condos
last year, and has certainly become a force to be reckoned with when it comes to sophisticated living. It’s one of the most upscale buildings in the city, with unmatched concierge services available to residents day and night. Other conveniences include the growing number of state-of-the-art, on-site amenities, such as spas, gyms, meeting rooms, upscale dining and services from dry cleaning to valet parking to room service.
Several other buildings have long made a name for themselves in terms of the Chicago lifestyle: Trump Tower
