Imagine having all the space of a single family home in the suburbs, but the city at your front door? The Park at Lakeshore East and the Maggie Daley Park would be your front and backyards, and you'll be only steps from all the entertainment, dining, and culture that downtown Chicago has to offer.

We love Chicago - the architecture, the parks, the many amazing restaurants, the art and culture scene, and of course, the real estate. But the one thing we love the most? The many opportunities the city offers to give back.
