Lake Shore Drive is home to some of Chicago’s most highly sought after condo buildings. Breathtaking unobstructed views of Lake Michigan certainly top the list of why so many home buyers specifically want condo space directly on one of Chicago’s most famed thoroughfares, but many buildings on Lake Shore Drive actually offer more than just that coveted million dollar view.
There’s no doubt that if you live on Lake Shore Drive, you’re in a prime downtown location. Access to transportation, fine dining, fun-filled entertainment, and all the best shopping downtown Chicago has to offer is likely just blocks from your front door, but among the dozens of condo buildings that make up the Lake Shore Drive landscape, exactly what part of ‘The Drive” is the most desirable?
Of course the answer to that question will always vary between home buyers and their different tastes in design, architecture, location, and many other factors that go into making a decision on a new home, but one upscale, extremely attractive stretch of Lake Shore Drive that certainly ranks near the top of the list actually runs east and west rather than the more common north/south direction.
East Lake Shore Drive is home to some of the most exclusive real estate in all of downtown Chicago, let alone just Lake Shore Drive. Situated just around the corner from the Magnificent Mile, East Lake Shore Drive is exclusive, extravagant, charming, and charismatic all rolled into one luxurious package. Buildings here are home to many of Chicago’s elite and even Oprah once called East Lake Shore Drive home. Interested in learning more?
