ONNI GROUP, KREEL CREATIVE DESIGN CONSULTANTS

Listed at $45,000 per month, this stunning penthouse from Onni Group has earned the title of most expensive residential rental property in the Chicago real estate market – and it’s not hard to understand why.

After Onni’s successful launch of their luxury residential and hospitality division – LEVEL Furnished Living – in Vancouver, Toronto and Los Angeles, the Vancouver-based company has expanded to the Windy City.

The penthouse is located in the first tower of Old Town Park, a three-phase development designed by Chicago firm Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture. The sprawling 3-bed, 4.5 bath abode occupies the 31st and 32nd floors and features nearly 8,000 square feet of lavish indoor and outdoor space. 

The first level consists of the primary living spaces, with plenty of room to entertain. The main area has a fully open floor plan with a centralized kitchen, dining and living room with views towards downtown. The gourmet chef's kitchen (which is next to a concealed full-size prep kitchen) features an entertainment island with waterfall quartzite countertops, European-inspired custom flat-panel cabinets, and integrated Sub-Zero & Wolf appliances.

Near the kitchen, the formal living room and dining room have sliding balcony doors which lead out to a large wrap-around terrace. On the opposite side of the unit, slightly partitioned by a double-sided media center, is a raised mezzanine with a bar and full-size dual-temperature wine fridge.

The sophisticated, fully-furnished interior was designed by Kreel Creative Design Consultants. Using a light-toned palette of natural stones, oak, grey fabrics, and metallic accents, the result is a rich, warm play on neutrals. A variety of large format stones, wood, and glass are used to create beautiful features such as the porcelain-encased fireplace and the cantilevered floating staircase. The most impactful design feature is the floor-to-ceiling windows enveloping nearly the entire floor plan, offering stunning panoramic views of the city skyline and Lake Michigan.

Two ensuite bedrooms, a den, the master suite and laundry room are located in a separate wing of the first level. Each private retreat features high-end finishes such as engineered oak hardwood flooring, bathrooms clad in floor-to-ceiling travertine stone tile and polished marble countertops, and spacious closets with custom millwork organizers. The master suite has access to the wrap-around terrace, which looks out onto the lake.

Accessible by the stairs or in-home elevator, the cozy upstairs lounge opens out to a private rooftop terrace. The 3,540-square-foot outdoor space is perfect for entertaining with multiple lounge and dining areas, a bar and kitchen, and an elevated pool and hot tub complete with an outdoor shower. The sky-high oasis offers unparalleled 360°-views of Chicago's breathtaking landscape.
