The existing interior design or staging of a resale property can increase or sometimes decrease a home’s desirability, but it always leaves an impression. Check out this 52nd-floor penthouse at 55 E Erie St in Streeterville. According to broker Rubloff, the condo has recently been “completely redone” with $2 million in upgrades and finishes by design firm Gregga Jordan Smieszny. Judging by these mostly empty rooms, do you think this pad has the same jaw-dropping effect it might have if it were all decked out in expensive furniture and art work?
The three-bedroom condo has 4,165 square feet, 11-foot ceiling heights, Terrazzo floors, a kitchen by Bulthaup, Gascogne Bleu French limestone countertops, heated bathroom floors and three terraces. The $3.8 million price tag includes two deeded parking spaces.
