Lake Point Tower

505 N LAKE SHORE DRIVE - Streeterville Condo

About Lake Point Tower

The Lake Point Tower is one of the most distinctive skyscrapers on the Chicago skyline, largely because it’s detached from the rest of the city's tallest buildings. The magnificent building is located on a peninsula that leads to Navy Pier. Unlike most of Chicago's tallest buildings, Lake Point Tower is all-residential, and in fact it stood until 1993 as the tallest all-residential condo building in the world. Every window of every residence in this attractive building features unrestrictive views of Lake Michigan and the city skyline.

Standing alone, like a sculpture or monument, the Lake Point Tower at 505 N. Lake Shore Drive is one of the most desirable and luxurious high-rise residencies in the city.

Sitting in Chicago’s popular neighborhood of Streeterville, the building is steps away from Navy Pier, Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, Chicago’s theatre district, and more! The location couldn’t be better, but once you find out what the Lake Point Tower has to offer, you might not want to leave home.

A private park surrounds the building with over 2.5 acres of paradise. Designed by the world-renowned landscape architect Alfred Caldwell, you can enjoy colorful flower gardens and meticulously manicured grass where you can lounge or have a picnic.

For active residents, Lake Point Tower offers many activities that include a health club, weight room, yoga room, cardio room, indoor pool, and racquetball and handball areas. For those who want to relax, the building provides a soothing sauna and steam room as well as a private spa with massage services.

Whether you want to socialize or shop, you don’t have to leave 505 N. Lake Shore Drive. Get a haircut at the high-end salon and show it off the same night at the Cite Restaurant, a fine dining establishment at the top of Lake Point Tower.
