Project outcome

The high-end building, designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz, features a sleek, modern curtainwall façade and 706,705 square feet of luxurious accommodations and amenities. The building provides 500 new luxury rental residences with expansive views of the City to the west; the lakeshore and the river to the north and south; and Lake Michigan and Navy Pier to the east. The slender, glass tower is designed to not only optimize views but also produce a dramatic sense of openness and natural light in every residence through floor-to-ceiling glass.

Ranging from one-bedroom efficiencies to luxury three-bedroom penthouses, each of the 500 units is thoughtfully furnished with floor-to-ceiling windows, state of the art gourmet kitchens, custom bathrooms and wide-plank flooring. The building also offers a rooftop pool with cabanas, a private gym by Equinox, party room, game lounge, movie room, café, business lounge, library, technology center, cellular-enhanced wireless communication and 430 parking spaces.

500 Lake Shore Drive achieved LEED-NC Gold.
