It’s said that the only guaranteed views in Chicago are eastern exposures along Lake Shore Drive. As a result, these kinds of premium properties typically command equally premium prices. This, however, does not appear to be the case with this recently listed two-bedroom, two-bathroom Lakeview residence overlooking Belmont Harbor and Lake Michigan.
The relatively attainable home is perched on the 10th floor of the 3410 N. Lake Shore Drive condominiums, an International-style tower designed by L. R. Solomon & Associates in 1955. The brightly-lit property does show a few signs of its age—notably through its somewhat dated windows, floor-mounted radiators, and a communal laundry room in lieu of a more convenient in-unit washer/dryer.
These drawbacks and annoyances can be easily overlooked given the condo’s bargain price of just $279,000. Building amenities include a mid-century lobby, fitness center, and rooftop sundeck with grilling stations. Parking at an adjacent garage is available to purchase for an additional $30K while HOA fees tack on $796 per month.
