This apartment building sits at the corner of (Mi)chigan and (La)ke, hence the name. The brand new glass tower is among the most prominent new residential projects in Chicago. Described favorably by Chicago Tribune architecture critic Blair Kamin as “sliced modernism,” the sleek contemporary building features straight lines interrupted by trendy in-set balconies. Residents can visit the sixth floor social lounge to watch a movie or to walk out onto the rooftop urban garden deck. There they can grill, sit by a fire or relax on the unexpectedly large grass lawn. The 41st floor offers sweeping views from a comfortable lounge. A sun deck and relaxation pool offer residents an opportunity to get away from it all, even while gazing down on bustling Michigan Ave. and Millennium Park.
