A couple weeks ago, I went on an evening tour of the Lakeshore East development. I have a soft spot in my heart for Lakeshore East, because my husband and I took our wedding party photos in the park at its center. One of our friend’s used to live there as well.
First I got to peak out on the balconies of a penthouse in The Coast. Could you imagine having such awesome views from your home? I can’t. From this apartment, I could see the famous Bean in Millennium Park, the Chicago River, the southern end of the Magnificent Mile, and Navy Pier.
Then I got to see the Aqua up close. It was a foggy night, and the building’s undulating facade disappeared into the clouds.
Lastly, I wandered over to check out Lakeshore East Park. It was really pretty, with all the lights lit up.
It was a pretty cool evening. I definitely recommend checking out Lakeshore East, if you’re looking for a new Chicago neighborhood to explore. There are a bunch of new businesses and restaurants now, and the dog park is always hopping.
