This building is grand on many scales but what sets it apart from other skyscrapers is that it is not near many other buildings of similar height so it really stands out. It is one of the first buildings you’ll notice when you’re in the...More

Very unique building of the '60s. Every unit in the building has a stunning view of the lake and/or the city skyline. Beautifully designed. Offers best, uninterrupted views of the amazing city of Chicago. Inhabited by some of Chicago's most exclusive residents.

It is a modernist building dating back to 1968! It is elegant and beautiful in its simple style! :-)

Stumbled upon this nice building on my way to Navy Pier. It's very impressive and it's definitely a city mark during night. Great position, facing Lake Michigan. I am sure the views inside are breathtaking.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
