Renovated 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath corner residence with private lakefront terrace at The Columbian. Unobstructed views of Lake Michigan and Grant Park are protected for eternity. Your new home has the most desirable location in the South Loop with priceless vistas of the Museum Campus and Michigan Avenue from your living room, dining room and primary bedroom suite while essential retail and restaurants are just steps away - Jewel & Trader Joes are within 1 block. Don't settle for a puny balcony or an inferior City view when you can have it all on your 300 square foot, private terrace along Michigan Avenue. This home has one of only two private, wrap-around lake front terraces in the building. You can host a lively party with coveted views, watching spectacular fireworks or just relax in your private respite above it all. This unit has two (2) en-suite baths plus a powder room for guests. The primary bedroom is stunning with lake and park views, a large walk-in closet and a spacious, renovated, spa-like bathroom with marble flooring and a large walk-in shower with bench. The second bedroom is also grand with City views. The second bedroom's bath, the powder room and the kitchen have also been renovated. The bonus powder room is a great amenity so your guests do not need to use either of the two, en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen is richly appointed with Kraftmaid cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The unit has been freshly painted throughout and has new, white oak, hardwood flooring. Amenities include a full-size washer & dryer (no, it's not in your kitchen), extra storage in hall closets, a large linen closet/pantry, wiring for whole house sound and a secure storage locker. The Columbian is a Class A building with 24-hour doorman, attentive management, refrigerated delivery room, high speed internet, tight security protocols, penthouse fitness center, large party room with full kitchen, entertainment/sun deck & BBQ, dog run, resident business office and bike storage. The well-equipped fitness center is at the 47th floor lakefront penthouse. The views are breathtaking while you're stretching, burning calories on one of the Peloton bikes, treadmills, ellipticals, workout machines or lifting weights. A prime, lower-floor parking space completes your new home for an additional $40,000. You can hear the roar of the Bears' game from your terrace but you can also just walk through the park to go to the Bears and Fire games at Soldier Field. There's always something happening from the Chicago Marathon coming down Michigan Avenue at your terrace to Sox/Hawks/Bulls/Bears/Cubs Championship Celebrations in the park, The Art Institute, CSO/Symphony Center, Lollapaloosa, City festivals, softball, soccer & skateboarding in Grant Park, concerts at the Petrillo Music Shell & Pritzker Pavilion, Merle Reskin Theater, Buddy Guy's Legends, "The Bean" & skating ribbon, Chicago Yacht Club, Burnham Harbor and more. Hot restaurants are in every direction. Essential retail, banking and clothing stores are just around the corner: Jewel, Trader Joes, Walgreen's, Target, Whole Foods, Mariano's, Home Depot, Marshall's, Binny's... Commuting is easy on Michigan Avenue, a short walk to the Orange, Red & Green Line station and the Metra Electric station at 11th Street in Grant Park.
