Donald Trump might be making a mockery of the Republican Party presidential primary, but the Chicago building that dons his name houses some pretty dope pads. Take this four-bedroom, three-bathroom 69th-floor condo for example, which hit the market over the weekend for a hefty $4 million.
While it pales in comparison to the River North building's 87th-floor penthouse (which sold for $17 million last December), the abode gives a pretty good look into what it's like to live in one of Chicago's tallest and ritziest buildings. Motorized curtains, floor-to-ceiling windows and an enviable view of the lake are just a few of the features that come with the condo. But at 3,102 square feet, it's not exactly a mansion—and the price breaks down to $1,289 per square foot.
The Trump Tower has gotten a good deal of negative feedback since it opened in 2008, especially after Trump shrugged off criticism about the installation of a 20-foot-tall "TRUMP" sign last year, stating that "as time passes, it'll be like the Hollywood sign." More recently, the four-time bankrupt mogul ruffled a lot of feathers in Chicago when he called for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to keep out "rapists" and "criminals." Those comments led local brewery 5 Rabbit Cerveceria to stop providing a custom beer brewed exclusively for one of the tower's lounges (and eventually changed the name of the beer to "Chinga tu Pelo," or "Fuck your Hair.")
In any case, luxury condos in Trump Tower are some of the hottest real estate in the city. While Trump's persona, agenda and overall ego hover somewhere on the border between sociopathic and childish ignorance, it's hard to deny that you wouldn't want to live in his namesake Chicago building.
