Although luxury condos didn’t move as quickly as they have in recent previous months, sales in March did not disappoint, with 6 sales that exceeded $2 million and went all the way up to $4.65 million. There were just 8 luxury sales total (those units sold for more than $1 million) but total sales volume was $46 million.
As far as trends go, it’s no surprise that last month’s sales were concentrated among well-known buildings with hotel-grade amenities and coveted locations in downtown Chicago and the Gold Coast. Two of the top 5 sales were located in the Park Hyatt at 800 Michigan, which is an amazing location on the Magnificent Mile and offers residents all of the services and amenities of the Hyatt Hotel next door.
Here’s a closer look at each of the top five sales and the features that landed them on this month’s top sales report:
