The LEED Gold 500 Lake Shore Drive incorporates a high-performance building enclosure, a living green wall, efficient building systems, daylighting, a green roof, and lush ground level landscaping of native species. In addition to ground floor convenience retail, the building features comprehensive luxury amenities, including a private gym, outdoor pool deck, cinema, dog run and pet spa, game and reading lounges, coffee bar, business center, and expansive outdoor landscaped garden. As one of the last parcels of developable land on Lake Shore Drive, it was important to developer Related Midwest to contribute to Chicago’s legacy of great design with 500 Lake Shore Drive. The client’s programmatic and design requirements were collaboratively and successfully filled by SCB, creating a best-in-class luxury multi-family apartment high-rise that has become an important part of the Chicago skyline, a prestigious living choice for Streeterville residents, and a favorite for skyscraper fans on Instagram (@500lakeshoredrive).
