It’s probably safe to say that few homes in Chicago’s East Lakeview neighborhood offer better waterfront scenery than this corner unit perched on the 52nd floor of Park Place Tower—one of the city’s tallest buildings outside of downtown. And, with an asking price just shy of $325,000, these stellar Lakeview lake views are relatively attainable.

At 1,150 square feet, the unit’s floorplan isn’t exactly huge, but it does manage to squeeze in two bedrooms and two full baths. The hardwood floors were recently refinished, and the kitchen has stone counters and newer stainless steel appliances. But the star is really the expansive northeast views across Lake Shore Drive, Montrose Harbor, and water as far as the eye can see.

Other perks include building amenities such as an outdoor pool deck, a well-equipped fitness center, and 24-hour door staff. Monthly homeowner association dues run $976, but also cover heating, air conditioning, cable TV, and internet service. The sky-high condo is listed by Redfin agent Michael Linden and is even having an open house this Saturday.
