680 North Lake Shore Drive in Chicago is an elegant 29-story building nestled in the crescent of modern skyscrapers that border the outer harbor of Lake Michigan. Constructed in 1926, it was the largest building in the world when it was completed.
It is now used as a mixed-use building consisting of 160 separate residential units, about 65,000 square feet of retail space and approximately 420,000 square feet of office space. Its distinguished address, unparalleled amenities and its proximity to Northwestern Memorial Hospital make it perfectly suited for medical and professional businesses of all types.
After a recent elevator modernization, the classic art-deco style building now offers its tenants advanced destination-dispatch elevator technology, which optimizes traffic flow through the building.
