Lakeshore East

The perfect place to live for those who value a slower-paced and neighborly lifestyle.

Welcome to Lakeshore East

A small, endearing community nestled against the sparkling waters of Lake Michigan
One of the best-kept secrets of Chicago, the master-planned community of Lakeshore East is a peaceful and private section of the city along Lake Michigan. Offering scenic waterfront views and lush garden spaces, this charming community only encompasses 28-acres in the northeastern part of The Loop and continues to expand today. 
A former railroad yard, Lakeshore East is home to dozens of modern high-rise apartment buildings and condominiums. The neighborhood features spectacular restaurants and steakhouses and luxury hotels, but on a smaller scale than the surrounding Chicago communities. With a small-town feel, Lakeshore East is the perfect place to live for those who value a slower-paced, neighborly lifestyle, but want the upscale amenities of the city within reach.
