Lakeshore East CondosChicago’s Lakeshore East neighborhood is where you’ll find some of the Windy City’s most mesmerizing residential high-rises, which often feature incredible living spaces and even better views. Not surprisingly, condos for sale in Lakeshore East can often get a bit pricey, especially in high-profile buildings like Vista Tower and Aqua. 

If you know where to look, however, Lakeshore East can still be a place buyers will find great deals on condos listed under $500,000. And to prove it, take a closer look at what's currently on the market inside these Lakeshore East buildings and see for yourself!

400 E. Randolph 

Although 400 E. Randolph is one of the neighborhood’s older buildings, it’s a great place to start a condo search under $400,000 because of all the different options you’ll find here. Most studio and one-bedroom units here are priced under that $400,000 mark, and it’s also building that features great views from just about every single unit. 

450 E. Waterside

If you’re looking for something newer, check out one-bedroom condos at The Chandler. Most should be priced just under $400,000 and include features like floor-to-ceiling windows, updated appliances in most cases, in-unit laundry, and surprisingly big closets!

Lake Point Tower 

Along with being Chicago's only condo building east of Lake Shore Drive, Lake Point Tower is also a great place to find a deal on a condo. Thanks to its lakefront positioning, you really can't beat the views from here, and you'll also be just steps from Navy Pier, which can be great when hosting out-of-town guests!
