This has been the preferred Chicago property of Airbnb founder and CEO, Brian Chesky.
Located in the beautiful and historic Old Town neighborhood in the heart of downtown Chicago. On bustling Wells Street, steps to all the great things Chicago has to offer - the lake, Topo Gigio and Old Town Ale House (both Anthony Bourdain favorites), high-end boutiques, and the famous Second City Comedy Club.
This is a beautiful 2,500 sq. ft penthouse loft in the heart of downtown Chicago.
The building is next to "Magnificent Mile" and steps away from amazing restaurants, comedy club (Zannies, Second City), theaters, boutique shopping, public transportation (red line, and 156 bus line), bars and just four blocks from the beach.
**Please be aware there are 45 steps to get to the unit (2 flights).
