The Carlyle residence is located just north of the Magnificent Mile in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Designed by Hirschfeld Pawlan & Reinheimer, this building was completed in 1967. Known for their previous work designing what became the Playboy Hotel and is now called the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel, Hirschfeld Pawlan & Reinheimer promised that The Carlyle building would be another example of“unparalleled elegance and comfort.” They did not disappoint, designing a building that featured amenities such as an indoor pool and grand ballroom while showcasing sweeping views of Lake Michigan from each of the 40 units in the building. Today, The Carlyle is still considered one of the most prestigious residence towers in Chicago.
