On Elm and LSD, this lavish co-op building in the Gold Coast sure knows how to occupy a corner. Built in 1911, it was designed by Chicago native Howard Van Doren Shaw, the same architect behind the historic Lakeside Press Building in the South Loop. Residing within is a 4-bed home, on the market for $1.7M after two rather juicy price drops totaling $785K. After rifling through the listing photos, there's a lot of busy wallpaper that really needs to go. The bedrooms are also kinda small for this price point. But you've got tons of windows and an extra-wide living room with elegant moldings and a woodburning fireplace. The 3,700-square foot home also features an eat-in kitchen, butler's pantry, and a library/study. And while the 3rd floor pad doesn't offer up marquee lake views, you'll still be able to gaze out with satisfaction at the other East Lakeshore Drive co-ops.
