179 East Lake Shore Drive #23e

$1,700,000
  • 3 Beds
  • 4.50 Baths
  • 3,860 SqFt
  • 2 Garages

This rarely available high floor apartment at Drake Tower with 3,860 square feet has spectacular lake and shoreline views. The apartment was last renovated in 1986 by the Chicago firm of Krueck & Olsen as a modern home and showcase to display a 20th-Century art collection. The apartment is unique to the building because it includes the space of the master bedroom and bath from the adjoining unit, making it among the larger units in the building. In its current state, the apartment's floor plan is very open and bright including white marble floors in the foyer, living room and dining room. The wall originally separating the living and dining rooms has been removed. The original configuration would have included 4+ bedrooms and 5 full baths. The offering price reflects the need to restore to the apartment to the Krueck & Olsen era or completely renovate it to a more classic aesthetic. This is an outstanding value! Please note the taxes and heat are included in the assessment.
