There is but one residential building in Chicago that is east of Lake Shore Drive, and that would be Lake Point Tower at 505 N Lake Shore, standing apart from all other high-rises along Lake Michigan. Based at the foot of Navy Pier, it is also the only building with Lake Michigan on three sides – views uninterrupted.
The 70-story building, completed in 1969 was designed by two students of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture. Known for his minimal framework and use of large plate glass – the units in Lake Point Tower feature the lake and city views through uninterrupted walls of windows.
There is no typical unit in the building, as many have been combined to form larger units, in fact, there are now 752 residential units, whereas the building originally had 879 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom units.
One of those listings is Unit 1516, a combined unit with top-of-the-line amenities and three incredible views – north to the lake, west to the city, and south to the lake and parks.
