Timber lofts are a rare occurrence in Streeterville and the lakefront more generally. 540 N Lake Shore Drive has 'em though, and this is the cheapest we've seen. Now, it's not nearly as swank as this guy, but it's half the price with only slightly less square footage — for all those on a quest for a Loop-proximate lakeside foothold. The one-bed + den unit has nearly 1,100 square feet, high ceilings, "closets galore", French doors, and a new bathroom with double vanity. It could use a pick-me-up, but the path to achieving that is pretty open and inviting. The full amenity building has 24 hour door staff, exercise room, and rooftop deck with grills and Navy Pier views. The initial ask is $260K.
