Michigan Avenue Tower II

You might call Michigan Avenue Tower II, located on 1400 South Michigan Avenue in the South Loop, the encore to the very successful Michigan Avenue Tower I. Although not scheduled to top out until spring of 2008 with deliveries planned for fall of that year, Tower II can already be called a success in its own right. The building is rapidly selling out and although the original number of units was 268, several people have bought two units and combined them which may drop the actual number to 260.

The 28 story building is coming together as a result of developer Frankel and Giles, contractor Walsh Construction and architects Pappageorge/Haymes. The style is Art Deco and the views from private terraces and large windows are fantastic. Residents will be treated to the Chicago skyline from the west and north and the Lake Michigan view to the south will remain intact because of an agreement with the building that occupies the tract next door.

With Museum Campus and Grant Park within walking distance you will have easy access to some of the best attractions in town. Add in the world class boutiques, restaurants, high end retailers, theaters and clubs downtown and the problem won't be finding something to do, but finding time to do it all. Transportation is a cinch as well with the close proximity of the Loop, Metra and bus stops.

Building amenities at Michigan Avenue Tower II are almost too numerous to list. A 24 hour doorman is always on hand and the elevators are secure. The entrance is monitored via camera and the building is equipped with a fire and smoke detection system and sprinklers. Currently, one parking space in the heated garage is being offered for free with the purchase of a condo. There are over 300 parking spaces located on floors one through six, oversized spaces are available and valet guest parking is offered. Bike storage and individual resident storage space is provided on the lower level. About 8,775 square feet of lower level retail space is also present and you can grab a quick cup of coffee on your way out while you drop off your dry cleaning.

The seventh floor of Tower II has a modern fitness center with up to date exercise equipment ready to keep you in shape. The center gives way to an outdoor sun deck complete with large swimming pool, landscaped garden and is the perfect spot to bring guests for an afternoon of fun and entertainment. You can also invite friends and family over for special occasions and host the event in the building party room and use the attached kitchen to prepare a meal or just snacks and drinks. Even your best four-legged guest won't be left out because there is an outdoor dog run.

Individual condo features are excellent as well. From the solid wood core doors with brushed chrome hardware to the hardwood flooring, everything is top of the line. Ceilings run nine to ten feet high and you can opt to have a gas fireplace installed. All units have a washer and dryer hook-up and are also pre-wired for cable television, telephones and high speed Internet access.

The kitchens have either a GE or Frigidare stainless steel appliance package. The cabinets measure 42 inches and are crafted from either maple or cherry and are formaldehyde free. There is an under sink water filter, air filter, granite backsplash and counter tops plus Grohe faucets.

The baths feature soaker tubs in the master suite, Grohe faucets, ceramic tile on the floors and surround, marble top vanities and designer lighting.

The units break down into one and two bedroom floor plans with some three bedroom suites. The one bedroom, one bath plus optional den condos range in size from 692 to 825 square feet. The two bedroom, two bath with optional den runs from 1,027 to 1,260 square feet. And the three bedroom, two bath plus den measures 1,384 square feet.

Michigan Avenue Tower II certainly lives up to the standard set by the first tower of the same name. Buyers respond to well designed luxury homes in such a great location and when a development like this becomes so popular, it’s no wonder that a repeat performance is demanded.
