500 Lake Shore Drive

Chicago, Illinois / United States of America

With expansive views of the city, Navy Pier, and Lake Michigan, 500 Lake Shore Drive offers a new paradigm for luxury sustainable urban living. The LEED Gold certified, 485-foot tower incorporates a high-performance building enclosure, a living green wall, efficient building systems, daylighting, a green roof, and lush ground level landscaping of native species. In addition to ground floor convenience retail, the building features comprehensive luxury amenities, including a private gym, outdoor pool deck, cinema, dog run and pet spa, game and reading lounges, coffee bar, business center, and expansive outdoor landscaped garden. 500 Lake Shore Drive is an important addition to the Chicago skyline. As one of the last remaining open parcels of land on Lake Shore Drive, the owner and architect sought to continue the legacy of great design in Chicago.
