Last Unsold Penthouse at 5th and Madison

We knew there were more units at 5th and Madison being held onto by the developer!

If you knew too and were waiting for the last unsold penthouse. Here’s your chance. If you’re waiting for unit 2304, keep waiting.

Unit #2402 just hit the market a few days ago.

1,950 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.

For such an expensive place you think maybe they’d send a professional real estate photographer in…

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Those pics are just sad.  Time for a post highlighting professional RE photography work.

    You’ve got to wonder what they are thinking….

    A little staging and a few hundred bucks on photography is all it would take.

    That penthouse has been on and off the MLS since 2007 – I remember looking at it in 2009. I guess they didn’t bother listing it in 2011 since nobody was buying.

    I notice they cut the price 25% from what they mentioned. Even so, 5th and Mad is a pretty horrid condo development. Apart from all the foreclosures and underwater sales,  the building has not aged well and is already starting to look shabby.

    Last time I visited, someone was moving there furniture in through the front door, because there is no freight elevator. And I just noticed the new restaurant closed their doors recently….

    Look at the HOA fees.  Does anyone else think they are exessive?  This building has become very heavy renter occupied building.
