Lakeshore East, also known as the New East Side, offers the tranquility of the lakefront and convenient access to the nearby downtown Loop. Flush with lush outdoor landscape and nestled between Millennium Park and the Chicago River, Lakeshore East is in a prime location with a calm, private feeling, providing the best of both worlds to residents.
Lakeshore East is steps from Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile and State Street's shopping and dining, as well as several of Chicago's most famous theatres and museums. However, if you're craving the calm, you won't have to venture into Chicago's bustling Loop to find plenty of entertainment and shopping. Village Market houses Mariano's grocery store, Filini contemporary Italian dining, III Forks Steakhouse, MingHin Chinese restaurant, as well as other shops, coffee shops, and a nail salon. Lakeshore East is also one of Chicago's most dog friendly neighborhoods and in addition to plenty of green outdoor space, Lakeshore East has its own dog park at 450 E. Benton Place.
Although walking distance to the heart of downtown, Lakeshore East has plenty of convenient and proximal transportation options. Lakeshore East is near the Randolph & Wabash CTA L station, which provides access to most parts of the city, as well as direct access to Midway Airport, via the brown, orange, green, and pink line trains. Millennium Station provides access to the northern, southern, and western suburbs via the Metra trains. Many buildings in Lakeshore East connect to the Pedway, and underground system of walkways frequently used by locals in the wintertime. The Pedway is lined with plenty of restaurants, stores, salons, and after work hangouts. The entrances to Lakeshore Drive and Lower Wacker Drive are both in close proximity as well.
