Lendlease provided repeat client, Related Midwest, together with their equity partners, preconstruction and construction management services for 500 Lake Shore Drive, a new 47-story and 495 foot apartment tower located in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood, just steps from Navy Pier and Lake Michigan.
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 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.
