Two levels of loft living at Metropolitan Place

Last month Ted Guarnero, our Chicago Loft Guide, took me through a duplex loft inside Metropolitan Place, 130 S Canal St, that he had recently listed for $499,000 in June 2010. Unit #9G, a two-bedroom / two-bath with 2,000 square feet, had some signature loft elements like pillars and high ceilings, but was finished much like a new condo. The unit features a 200 square-foot deck, diagonal hardwood floors, a fireplace, granite kitchen finishes, stone baths, and side-by-side washer and dryer. A pair of parking spaces are available for an additional $50,000.
