Story Image

Building amenities include a hotel-like lobby with 24-hour concierge.

John Dillinger might hardly recognize his old hangout, the Steuben Club. The soaring Roaring Twenties-era landmark had seen better days before it was purchased, rehabbed and reborn as the Randolph Tower City Apartments this year.

Landmarked in 2007, the terracotta-clad skyscraper at 188 W. Randolph originally was built by German-Americans who hoped to banish anti-German sentiment after World War I. It first housed businesses owned by German-Americans on the lower floors, with the club occupying its slender 18-story tower on the top.

Today, the building is sporting a complete gut rehab which offers tenants luxury living at a convenient, premier address. Studio apartments start at $1,500 with rents ranging up to $6,000 for penthouse units. The building offers 40 custom floor plans, all with premium finishes including hardwood floors, 9- to12-foot ceilings, granite countertops, granite portable islands, washers and dryers in unit, oversized walk-through closets and spacious baths complete with soaking tubs and rain showers.
