“Why dream small … when you can dream big”
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
This challenge will I only use images from one building – Aqua at Lakeshore East in Chicago. I wasn’t able to get a great full image of the building, so I have borrowed one from Twylah.com.
“Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.”
From the first day in July 2012, I laid eye on the building I said to myself that if I ever win enough money … some of them (or all) will I spend on a penthouse apartment in the building.
And I still dream about it.
The address is 225 N Columbus Dr, Chicago, IL 60601.
“The future belongs to those who believe
in the beauty of their dreams.”
Aqua is an 82-story mixed-use residential skyscraper designed by a team led by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects, with James Loewenberg of Loewenberg & Associates as the Architect of Record. The job started in 2007 and the first tenants moved in 2009.

tomorrow is today’s dream.”
The asking price for a two-level penthouse was $6 million in 2015 and today there isn’t any up for sale !!!
Unit 8108: $3,750,000 Listed on March 12, 2018, Penthouse with fourteen-foot ceilings, dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and a south-facing balcony. The kitchen includes a thirteen-foot island with a Calacatta Gold Marble countertop, top-quality appliances and custom cabinetry. Master suite has a spa bath and a custom walk-in dressing room (4 bedrooms and 3,5 bath plus 2 parking spaces).
The unit was sold for $1,731,000 in 2013 – somebody made 2 million in 5 years, talk about a great investment.
But for me … keep on dreaming!! And playing!!!!!!!!!
Or I can check in at Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel that occupies the 18 first floors of the highrise next time I visit Chicago, but I doubt that my lost account will be able to carry that damage.
“I have had dreams, and I’ve had nightmares.
I overcame the nightmares because of my dreams.”
