Property Description

The Drake Tower is Chicago's coveted pre-war co-op on landmarked E Lake Shore Drive with attached garage parking and indoor access to the Drake Hotel. Residences in this sought after full-service cooperative feature grand rooms, wood or gas burning fireplaces, and stunning lake, park, and city views. While the majority of apartments are over 3,000 square feet, residence 502 is one of the few 1,852 square foot two-bedroom units with 9' 6" ceilings and an in-unit storage room that could easily be converted to an office. Renovated in 2021, this sophisticated apartment with SpacePak air conditioning features an all-new kitchen with Studio 41 high-gloss kitchen cabinetry, quartz countetops, Bertazzoni gas cooktop and oven, a Bosch dishwasher, Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, and a wine refrigerator. There is a new Carrara marble primary bathroom with a walk-in shower, a second en-suite bathroom, a washer/dryer, and newly refinished hardwood floors. An elegant apartment in Benjamin Marshall's renowned Drake Tower.
