Had the listing not given us a heads-up, we'd have never guessed this 1929 co-op was a Benjamin Marshall. The tallest building on East Lake Shore Drive, it's a lot less showy than his other beaux-arts gems. We're here for this classic-themed 3/3.5 co-op, which just dipped from $3.2M to $2.95M. A wee bit high? Maybe so, considering a similarly sized unit on a higher floor was also hit with a hefty chop and is down to $2.575M. The 14th floor pad's 3,000-square feet spread out over a half-floor, encompassing a living room with original moldings and decorative columns. We're not sure if the decor rises to the level of a $3M home, but it does make a positive impression with its handsome foyer and rich woodwork. The unit carries with it garage parking, interior access to the Drake Hotel, and first-rate LSD views.
