5 insanely expensive high-rise homes that hit the market this week

Anyone who's gazed in awe at Chicago's skyline has dreamed of living atop one of the city's giant buildings, looking down upon the commoners with a glass of scotch in hand.

Alas, it is incredibly expensive to own such a lifestyle. This week, several of those luxurious downtown homes in the sky went up for sale.

132 E Delaware Place, Unit #6302 — $6.4 million

Believe it or not, this 63rd-story space perched above the Four Seasons hotel just slashed its price by more than $5 million. In 2010, the home was listed for an ambitious $11.5 million. A grand staircase, 2,000-bottle wine cellar and a limestone fireplace are nice, but not eight-figures nice.

800 N Michigan Ave, Unit #5702 — $4.5 million

This Mag Mile condo boasts the most expensive price per square foot on this list at $1,139, which is close to the city's median monthly rent.

55 E Erie St, Unit #5201 — $4.5 million

This penthouse seems like an ideal fit for a 21st century power couple. A steam shower, updated kitchen and two Streeterville parking spaces are probably conducive for the lifestyles of a pair multi-millionaire executives.

11 E Walton St, Unit #3301 — $3.69 million

The owners of this Gold Coast pad are looking to squeeze a profit out of the 2008 housing market crash. The place sold for $2.45 million in 2009, and now it's listed at a 150 percent markup.

60 E Monroe St, Unit #6701 — $2.15 million

This 67th-story Loop home is also at a reduced price — it was listed at $4.5 million last March. Stellar views of the lake come with this space, but parking will cost the buyer an additional $55,000 to $75,000.
