Queen Elizabeth II made headlines for investing in downtown Chicago real estate today. The three bedroom, three bathroom condo sold for $1.575M and will become the residence of Canadian consul Roy Norton.  While The Buckingham offers stunning city views of Millennium Park and Maggie Daley Park, the Queen could skip renovations, and rent a newer, luxury apartment. Here are our four picks of downtown Chicago apartments fit for royalty:

1. 50 E. Chestnut

This 4,000 square foot Gold Coast residence comes fully-furnished with a private elevator. With a walk score of 100, this location is tough to beat. The three bedroom, four bathroom apartment has everything; from a gourmet chef’s kitchen with Wolf/Sub Zero double-oven to heated floors in the master bath. Perfect for entertaining, the apartment features a wet-bar, separate dry-bar, two large outdoor private terraces, and a pool table. Available October 1st, this private rental is $15,500 per month, which includes a heated parking spot, utilities and access to the top-floor fitness center.

2. AMLI River North

High atop one of River North’s most luxurious apartment towers, the penthouse levels at AMLI River North leave little to be desired. With Lyfe Kitchen and Paris Club downstairs, AMLI River North places residents in the social heart of everything. The private amenities at AMLI River North are some of the best in the city, featuring a Las Vegas-style pool deck complete with cabanas, golf simulator, private screening room and more.  A three bedroom, two bathroom penthouse priced at $6534 will be coming available in October with a superior finish package, higher ceilings, and a bonus technology package.

3. North Water

One of Chicago’s newcomers, North Water made a splash in Streeterville this year. Living above the Loews Hotel comes with many perks for residents, who have easy access to Streeterville Social and can take advantage of the hotel’s spa and services. However, North Water has its own set of private amenities for residents- the sky deck and lounge provide breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and the city. If that view sounds appealing, you’ll enjoy the three bedroom penthouse on the 49th floor. Be the first to live in this apartment, which includes a massive private outdoor terrace that’s slightly larger than the spacious indoor living/dining space.

4. OneEleven

After a record-breaking first year, OneEleven has firmly established its position at the top of Chicago’s real estate market. And fortunately, there is a penthouse coming back on the market on October 7th. With three beds, and four bathrooms, this 2,345 square foot apartment boasts some of the city’s best views and closet space. OneEleven’s stunning designer kitchens are taken up a notch on the penthouse level, featuring Gaggenau appliances- including a wine cooler.  This 58th floor palace can be all yours for $12,253 a month.
