Description

Lake Point Tower, with its curvaceous glass facade, is the only high-rise east of Lake Shore Drive. The architects were both students of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Its odd Y-shape is carefully calculated so that all units have unobstructed lake views but residents cannot see into each other's windows. The building's podium is topped by an expansive 2.5-acre rooftop garden designed by renowned landscape architect Alfred Caldwell. Many celebrities have called Lake Point Tower home, including Sammy Sosa, Scottie Pippen, Tom Cruise, David Axelrod and Alice Cooper.

Behind the Scenes

Experience the beautiful Alfred Caldwell rooftop garden above the building's parking and retail podium.
