What $1 Million Buys You in Chicago's LakeShore East Neighborhood

Posted by Leila Zammatta on Monday, August 18th, 2014 at 8:47pm.

In many parts of Chicago, $1 million can buy you a fabulous condo or other type of home - and Lakeshore East is no exception. In fact, a million dollar home on the New East Side may possess even more perks than those in other neighborhoods, thanks to the area's proximity to the Loop business district, the Park at Lakeshore East, Millennium Park, Lake Michigan, and everything else that downtown Chicago has to offer.


Here are some of our favorite luxury downtown Chicago homes in the $1,000,000 price range:
