860 N LAKE SHORE DRIVE - Gold Coast Condo

About Mies Van Der Rohe

Named after the prominent 20th century architect who designed some of Chicago's most famous and recognizable buildings, including this one, this building at 860 N Lake Shore Drive is one of the most fashionable and convenient places to live in Chicago. Situated at 860 N. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago's fashionable Gold Coast neighborhood, these beautifully-crafted condos provide quality construction, spacious layouts and all the modern amenities you need to live in comfort. In addition the extra large windows in this particular building afford stunning views of Lake Michigan (which is just across the street) and of the downtown Chicago skyline. The various floorplans cater to single residents and families alike with as few as 2 bedrooms, or as many as 3 separate sleeping spaces to house the whole crew-including Fido and Fluffy, since the building has a "pets allowed" policy.

Just to give you the big picture, the units here average around 1565 square feet, with the price per square foot at $255. Breaking it down a bit more, the smallest units at 860 N Lake Shore Drive encompass 1,400 square feet of living area, while the largest ones span 1,600 square feet. In addition to a varying number of bedrooms, the range of dwellings here accommodate with different sized kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms and family rooms. For example, if you are big into cooking and like to have the counter space to go with your passion, there are 113 square-foot kitchens, not to mention 484 square-foot dining room in which to serve your culinary creations.

In addition to knowing how big the place actually is—and whether you'll be able to fit your sectional sofa in the living room—potential buyers also find it helpful to get the lowdown on the selling history and current trends of properties in the building.
