530 N. Lake Shore Dr. Chicago, Illinois Google map
Located on a long vacant and compact, but prestigious Chicago site, the reinforced concrete luxury condominium building includes seven stories of parking and a main floor lobby with business center and and entry/exit porte cochere. The street facades from the first through seventh floors are comprised of articulated architectural pre-cast panels and a granite base course. Three large bay elements of five story pre-cast, granite and glass framework draw attention to the designated entries. These bays are visually reinforced with vertical, fluted columns above (reminiscent of Art Deco) that extend beyond the parapet to articulate the rooftop sundeck and screen mechanical equipment. A graceful curve of the building along the east elegantly addresses Lake Shore Drive and provides a stately marker.
