The Metropolis Condominiums will be an ambitious renovation of an existing building on Monroe Avenue in the Chicago Loop that has been standing since 1913.

For this Loop residential building, homeowners generally pay between $1,500 and $4,000 per year in taxes and an average of $347 in assessments each month.


One more thing, in case you have a little furry friend at home who is planning on making the move with you-this building welcomes pets. So go ahead and pack up the toys, leashes, litter boxes, and food dishes because Fido or Fluffy may just become the newest four-legged neighbor at W. Monroe.
