Lakeshore East Chicago IL Real Estate
Lakeshore East is a master planned, mixed use development being built on the northeast side of the Chicago Loop and is being called the New East Side. It is well-situated in Chicago’s downtown core just east of Chicago’s “Loop” business district offering a walk to work location. Lakeshore East is surrounded by Lake Michigan, the Chicago River, Millennium Park, and our very own 6-acre Park at Lakeshore East.
The neighborhood features several of the tallest buildings in Chicago and will include a few of the tallest buildings in the United States. The overall planned development, the park and several of the individual buildings have won awards for architecture or urban planning. The buildings are planned for various types of residential use (condominiums, apartments, or hotels). Due to the neighborhood's proximity to both Lake Michigan to the east and the Chicago River to the north, many of the buildings are named with aquatic or nautical themes.
In the mid 19th century, the area was originally part of Lake Michigan. The federal government gave the land to the Illinois Central Railroad. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the area became a depository for fire debris and eventually was transformed into a bustling port for receiving agriculture and mineral products from the Midwest.
Decades later, Illinois Center and Lakeshore East were born as a commercial center and lakefront oasis. Lakeshore East offers splendid lake views and is within easy walking distance to one of the nation’s most prestigious retail districts, The Magnificent Mile with its specialty retail shops, art galleries, department stores and office buildings.
The Lakeshore East master-planned community is one of the greenest communities in Chicago with 590,000 square feet of green and open space.
