Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe's "skin and bones" architecture arguably has its greatest expression in 860-880 North Lake Shore Drive. A sizable lot of the building's co-op units are dead serious in reflecting this minimalism, but there's a newcomer to the market emboldened by dividers, wood paneling, tile, and a great deal of art. The renovators also configured a flowing 1,600-square-foot space with just one bedroom. It works— the 14th-floor unit is dangerously elegant and chock full of automation, high-end appliances, and natural gallery space. The built-in bar is a focal point, and the unit sports quality city and lake views. The ask: $595K with monthly dues of $1,993.
