About the Building

The Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago often gets overshadowed in the Chicago real estate market by its neighbors to the north, but one step inside this handsome residential high-rise and you'll think that you're in the Gold Coast. Located at 5050 S. East End Ave, just across the street from the lakefront and beautiful parkland, this structure has been around since 1950 and has 54 separate condos with general vicinity parking for residents with vehicles.

The Chippewa tower is a striking development offering units with a number of different layouts and an average of 1190 square feet of living space. The various floorplans include anywhere from 2 to 3 bedrooms with an average master bedroom size of 256 square feet. Typically, the kitchens are 86 square feet, providing plenty of space to cook dinner for the family, or whip up a feast to entertain friends at your new home. And speaking of entertaining, the living rooms in this building are designed with up to 425 square feet of floor space-enough to host small get-togethers, or just lounge around on your own in wide open privacy.
