The Lakeshore East mega-development is dominated by skyscrapers, but you don't have to live in a high-rise to call the New East Side home. Magellan's Parkhomes development, which is a mix of townhouses and low-rise condos, are dwarfed by their neighbors, and they were overshadowed by the attention lavished on Aqua when they were built a few years ago, but they aren't short on luxury. This 2,925-square-foot seventh-floor resale unit hit the market in December, and at $757 per square foot, it rivals the prices at some of the nearby penthouses. There are skylights in the living room, rain showers (with overhead lights that change colors), and a 1,000-square-foot private terrace with views of the lake and Lakeshore East Park. Plus: residents of the Parkhomes have access to the pool and other amenities across the park at Aqua. The price: $2.27 million.
