The Palmolive Building, designed by Holabird & Root, one of Chicago’s oldest and most prestigious architectural firms, was completed in 1929 as a commercial office building and headquarters of the Colgate-Palmolive company. It is one of the most widely recognized examples of Art Deco architecture in the world. The building is a Chicago Landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and its façade is a protected easement of Landmarks Illinois – all to insure that the building maintains its prominence for the next centuries to come. The building was converted to luxury condominiums in 2003-2005 with a full renovation of the infrastructure and rehab of the limestone and terra cotta façade. Today, the historic Palmolive Building is home to 98 luxury homes located within the 37 story Art Deco structure. The building’s set-backs now feature private terraces for the adjacent homes. Residents enjoy hotel style service and 24 hour door staff, valet garage and maintenance staff. Amenities include a fitness room, whirlpool and sauna spa, Beacon Club entertainment/meeting room, electronic security systems in all common areas, on-site Concierge and full time management staff.
