TRENDING NOW: The luxury high-rise market in Chicago’s Loop and Gold Coast has rebounded since the end of last year, says Maisel.“Things have come back in terms of retail and new construction in the high-end luxury buildings,” he says. More inventory is coming to market, satisfying demand, and “there are a lot of buyers out there, typically second-home buyers, empty nesters or people who are downsizing to smaller units.”
So what are buyers looking for in a luxury high rise? Beyond location, size, competitive pricing and access to outdoor space, Maisel says people looking in the high-end market notice the small details like custom millwork, flooring, walls and wall coverings. “Those things really go a long way in enticing a buyer to pull the trigger.” Boutique buildings with fewer than 100 units are doing especially well. “They’re very private, have great services and the units themselves are absolutely amazing.”
