The historic 850 Lake Shore Drive is a luxury apartment building built in 1927 in the Beaux Art architectural style with spectacular views of Lake Michigan. This beautiful building formerly housed the Lake Shore Athletic Club and was later converted to student housing and then sold again and completely rehabbed into luxury apartment homes. Offering sixty unique floor plans, these spacious apartment homes feature nine to fourteen foot ceilings, hardwood floors, Bosch stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and marble and porcelain baths. For your convenience, 850 offers amenities including a 24/7 doorman, rooftop deck, state of the art fitness center, on-site valet parking for both residents and guests and is pet friendly and smoke-free.
850 Lakeshore is an architecturally significant first class building with first class staff and amenities and the lake views from the living units, the rooftop and the historically renovated white room are second to none in all of Chicago. The location is within a couple blocks of: the best walking path on the Lake in all of Chicago, two beaches, Michigan Ave., a grocery store, many restaurants and also within walking distance of many of the important landmarks of Chicago.
We just can't express how thankful we are to have found 850 LSD and finally feel like we have found our long-term home! We travel quite a lot for work and greatly appreciate the support of the entire staff in having to manage things from afar at times. When home, we work from home and the internet connectivity is excellent! The unit is very quiet, which is also much appreciated when living downtown. The White Room is absolutely gorgeous and works as a fabulous place to entertain. I enjoy all of the offerings to participate in community events within the building. The other residents are so kind and welcoming.
850 is a hidden gem in Streeterville. Tucked away on a tree lined street with breathtaking views of Lake Michigan, you feel like you're in a neighborhood and yet only steps from the action on the Magnificent Mile. The management and support staff set the standard for outstanding service. They constantly go above and beyond. The building retains its vintage beauty and provides all the comforts of a modern lifestyle. The building is warm and inviting and feels like home.
I enjoy all aspects of my experience at 850 Lake Shore Drive and would recommend it highly.
We originally moved to 850 for a 6 month stay while renovating a new home. From our first contact with the rental office, we have felt wanted and welcomed by everyone at the building. As often happens with renovation, our 6 month stay continued to stretch out, and our requests to extend our lease have been met on a timely basis and with enthusiasm. We have very much enjoyed meeting other residents when we have spent time on the roof deck, whether it be cooking on the grills, relaxing on the chaises or sitting outside enjoying a drink and the view. Our stay at 850 will be coming to an end soon, and as we move on, we will do so with a bit of sadness to leave such a wonderful community behind.
