At this high-rise, you’ll be able to see gorgeous lakefront views, fireworks from Navy Pier, and get up close with skyline buildings.

This unit is in a tower designed by modernist architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The two matching steel towers on Lakeshore Drive were built in the early ’50s. The home is a combination of two south-end units, which means it’s longer and features a wall of bright floor-to-ceiling windows.

The living room and master bedroom take up most of the square footage in the condo. The second bedroom was separated from the living room with a tall wardrobe and curtain. What’s great about such an open floor plan is that you can create any layout or arrangement you want. It would be simple to transform that second bedroom into a grand dining area or dedicated office. The kitchen features a ton of stainless steel and the bathrooms have new tile and concrete surfaces.

The monthly assessment is quite a lot at $3,004, but it also includes heat, air conditioning, internet and cable on top of real estate taxes and the building mortgage.

Located at 880 Lakeshore Drive, Unit 16DH is listed for $629,000.

The kitchen is all stainless steel.
The open dining room sits near the living room and guest bedroom.
The master bedroom is just as large as the open living room.
