Lakeshore East sits east of Michigan Avenue, right between Lower Wacker Drive and Grant Park. The 28-acre neighborhood now known as the “New East Side” was once a former rail yard turned golf course. Over a decade ago, Magellan Development Group began construction on condos, luxury apartments, townhomes, shops, and green space to redevelop the area and create something spectacular. At the core of Lakeshore East is an award-winning 6-acre botanical park, which holds gardens, playgrounds, water features, and a dog park.

Although locals can access the Loop within minutes, Lakeshore East maintains a quiet atmosphere that’s perfect for professionals and families. The Village Market is home to Mariano’s Fresh Market, III Forks Steakhouse, Eggy’s Diner, and MingHin Cuisine, among others. Being steps away from the Loop, Michigan Avenue and the Theatre District creates a highly unique and convenient live-work lifestyle. Millennium Park is just a few steps away, where you can catch a concert, gaze at local artwork, join an outdoor workout class, catch a bite at the Park Grill and play in the Crown Fountain. During the winter, ice skating at the McCormick Tribune is a Chicago must-do.
