It’s a Chicago arc: A doctor and his wife who followed their five children to the city from suburban Oak Brook sell their 15th-floor condo and leave town to be closer to their 10 grandchildren.
The 4,400 square foot Lake Michigan view condo in Streeterville is coming on the market for $4.25 million, Crain reported. Steve and Mary Gitelis purchased the four-bedroom condo with minimal finishes and hired Steven Wendell of architectural firm Downers Grove AW Wendell & Sons to design the interior to accommodate family gatherings.
“There’s room for everyone,” said Gitelis, director of orthopedic oncology at Rush University Medical Center whose wife is a former nurse.
Marlene Rubenstein of Baird & Warner is representing the sellers and will put the condo on the market this week. The condo also comes with two indoor parking spaces.
The condo is the most expensive listing in the building, where eight other listings range from $1.2 million to $3.2 million.
The building, just north of Lakeshore Park, offers views of Lake Michigan and the Northwestern Law School campus and is a few blocks from the Museum of Contemporary Art and Michigan Avenue.
“Being able to wake up every day to the sunrise over Lake Michigan was a huge attraction for me,” Gitelis said. “The lake changes every day. One morning it’s clear and sparkling, and other mornings you see the big waves when the wind is blowing from the north. It’s amazing, visually.
