Listing of the Day
Price: $5.3 million
Most people who live in big American cities like New York, Boston and Washington would do virtually anything to have a single covered parking spot as part of their home. Imagine having 15.
That’s the key ingredient of a swank new listing in the West Loop. The first floor of the converted warehouse has a finished, loft-like garage for 15 cars—perfect for collectors—along with a lavish entertainment area with a casino room (the owner is from Las Vegas), a bar and bedroom suite.
“It’s the seventh most expensive garage in the world,” says listing agent Mohammed Cheaib.
The 7,000-square-foot second floor of the unassuming building holds the oversized living space for the owner, hedge fund manager Francis Wisniewski. Overhead, the open space has a dramatic barreled ceiling made of exposed, arched timber beams.
The second floor also has a modern kitchen with two ranges, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, complete with an infinity bathtub in the master suite.
The 15,860-square-foot two-level building has four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. It was built in 1943 and sits on three contiguous city lots.
There is a 1,000-square-foot deck with a hot tub on the back of the second floor.
The hip West Loop neighborhood lies along the western bank of the Chicago River. A former manufacturing and warehousing area, many of the buildings have been converted to trendy restaurants, nightclubs and art galleries.
Google’s new Midwest headquarters is nearby, Mr. Cheaib says, along with “lots of new luxury condo developments.”
