An opportunity to own one of the few two-bedroom residences on prestigious E Lake Shore Drive, home to Chicago's grand pre-war co-ops. Situated in the coveted Drake Tower, the spacious 1,852 square foot floor plan offers desirable north views of the lake and park from the 33-foot living room and large primary suite.
