I just came back from the Fairbanks at City Front Plaza, 240 East Illinois, which is virtually right around the corner from the Tribune Building. I was rather surprised to find that they have two lofts available for immediate occupancy.
I sold one loft from this development, and I must say they are very cool. I anticipate that for future resale, the lofts will do well given that there are few lofts that are close to Michigan Ave.
There are two remaing and the square footage is 1494 square feet. Both available units face south. If lofts are your thing, I would check them out.
