Glenda Spangler wasn’t entirely convinced that she and her husband, Ed, should buy a downtown condo as a getaway from their Glen Ellyn home.
Then she walked into this condo that faces east along the Chicago River from the 55th floor of the Trump International Hotel & Tower.
“I looked out there,” she recalls nearly 10 years later, and 'I said, OK, I’ll leave Glen Ellyn.'"
The three-bedroom, 3,100-square-foot condo is at one of the rounded corners of the tower, with floor-to-ceiling windows running roughly 90 feet from one end of the home to the other. (See more photos below.)
“The view is spectacular,” Ed Spangler said. “In the morning the sunrise on the lake, then as it comes up it lights up the city all around you. And later the sunset lights up the city in a whole different way.”
That view, the dozens of restaurants and cultural institutions within walking distance and the high level of service in the amenity-rich tower gradually shifted the couple’s allegiance, and two years later the condo became their primary Chicago residence and they sold their Glen Ellyn home of more than two decades.
79彩票注册网址 Ed Spangler, who retired a few years ago from a career in consulting, and Glenda, who retired from a consumer products company several years ago, plan to relocate to Florida. They’ll put their Trump Tower condo on the market in January. Represented by Phil Skowron of @properties, it’s priced at $2.99 million.
