Before there was the Lakeshore East development and Millennium Park, there were the high rises along Randolph Street and Harbor Drive.
The Park Shore, at 195 N. Harbor Drive, is a 482-unit high rise that was built along Lake Shore Drive and the Lake in 1991.
It is a full service building with a rooftop outdoor pool, tennis courts, a grocery store and a hair salon.
The building seemed to be ahead of its time as it boosts floor to ceiling windows. It also has the unit amenities of the newer Lakeshore East buildings such as central air, deeded parking and an in-unit washer/dryer.
This 2-bedroom with den on the 47th floor has some great views of Millennium Park and the city. The listing says it has updated kitchen and baths. It also has hardwood floors in the main living areas.
Someone commented recently that you seem to get more bang for your buck in this, and some of the other older, nearby buildings, than in Lakeshore East’s new construction.
Is this building an overlooked deal?
Sharon Sullivan at Koenig & Strey has the listing. See the pictures here.
