After chatting about the state of Chicago’s luxury market, Tricia Fox of Keller Williams Gold Coast Realtors took me through a couple of her listings inside the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, 401 N Wabash St. Many of Fox’s Trump listings are units investors secure within the first few days of pre-sales, meaning they spent much less on their homes than what the developer is asking now and can sell well below Trump’s asking prices while still turning a profit.
Take for example this 3,100 square-foot, three-bedroom condo, located on the tower’s northeast corner. Trump is still marketing homes in this tier for as much as $3.3 million, but Fox has listed hers at $2.5 million. As you’ll see, the home’s views are hard to beat, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering exposures from the west (almost straight down Ohio Street) all the way around to the Cloud Gate and Buckingham Fountain to the southeast.
