3800 N Lake Shore Drive was built in 1925 and houses 92 condos within its 17 stories. It’s a Tudor Gothic vintage building that is a prestigious landmark.

The building is highly secured even though it does not have a doorman. The building also has an on-site manager along with a maintenance staff that provide various services such as picking up trash and delivering mail to units twice a day. All that service along with heat, water, cable TV and high speed Internet require monthly assessments that have an estimated range of $800 to $2,000.

Residents and agents alike have told me that the association has very good reserves.
