Chicago is considered a high momentum cyclical market. Similar to other HNWI (high net-worth individual) markets in America like San Francisco. Which means it’s real estate market trend mimics the peaks and valleys of a roller coaster ride. Beyond lifestyle and fun, Chicago offers convenient travel to anywhere in the world. And when it comes to intellectual capital in the form of the tall building, Chicago minds are at the top of the pyramid.
What a crime these days. How some of these buildings have the audacity to include the word “luxury” in their advertising. Whether in Shanghai, Chicago or New York, all I do is stare at architecture—even when I drive.
My wife preferred it back when I would drive twice the speed limit—yet, would actually keep my eyes on the road. These days, I drive half the speed limit; while staring at the construction and design of high quality buildings in premier locations.
