About The Metropolis
What once was a stately office building in 1913 has undergone a beautiful and meticulous 28 million-dollar renovation in 2006 to emerge as the luxury residences at The Metropolis at 8 West Monroe Street in Chicago’s Loop neighborhood.
With 21 stories and 169 residences, including a spectacular 2-story penthouse, the original neo-gothic building façade remains, including four magnificent terra cotta owls keeping watch over the street from atop the building.
