860 & 880 N Lake Shore Drive are part of the same-co-op and were designed by renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. They were known as the “Glass House” apartments since no other high rises at the time had so much glass. Both buildings were added to the National Register of Historic Places and designated Chicago Landmarks. 860 & 880 N Lake Shore Drive were built in 1951 and house 250+ apartments combined within their 26 floors. There are a maximum of 4 units per floor in 860 and 8 units per floor in 880.
As with the minimalist style the amenities are also minimalist. There’s a door person, exercise room, meeting room and common laundry. Dogs are not allowed. Parking in the building can be purchased or leased for $250/month.
The monthly assessments include all utilities (minus Internet and phone), the building’s mortgage, on-going maintenance and property taxes. Since this is a co-op an application is required. It includes 3 letters of reference, an interview and an extensive credit check.
