About The Chandler

Chicago's 'New' East Side has seen impressive and much-needed redevelopment over recent years, and the way the Lakeshore East area has been reborn is particularly noteworthy. It's a shining example of smart and progressive urban design and development, and as the neighborhood has taken shape with everything a Chicago urbanite could want it has made Lakeshore East a popular choice for those inclined to choose condo living in the city. As you might expect, new condominium buildings in Chicago like the Chandler are popular with young working professionals and couples, and the number of Chandler condos for sale will definitely appeal to prospective first-time homebuyers who are of a similar demographic.

About Chandler Condos

The Chandler condominium development in Chicago is located at 450 East Waterside, and it's been a highly-sought after destination for condo buyers from as far back as when the units first went to pre-sale. The building's front facade features texturally-distinctive superimposed glass layers that give it a definitively eye-catching modern appeal, and many are pleased to find that its interior is just as modern and expressive as its interior.

Another aspect that Chandler condos for sale have going for them is the fact that they have very nice views of Lake Michigan, the Chicago river, and the Windy City's skyline. There is a selection of 1 and 2-bedroom units in building, with a corresponding number of bathrooms for each type but wth some of the 2-bedroom units being 2.5 bathrooms with 2 full baths and a 'powder room' with toilet and sink.

The Chandler is a pet-friendly building, and all units will come with secure underground parking.

Life in Lakeshore East, Chicago

For well over a century, the area that is now Chicago's Lakeside East was a railyard. It is only in the last 2 decades that the orientation of this massive parcel of lands has made the residential shift. The development explosion that has occurred since 2005 has seen these skyscraper condo buildings being nicely laid out around the expansive, scenic, and tranquil Lakeshore East Park—which many people are pleased to learn is the only park in Chicago that offers free wireless Internet

This really is the primary appeal point for Lakeshore East. You're still near to downtown Chicago, but the neighborhood is much more pleasant and scenic than most others.

Lakeshore East has been designed to provide residents of buildings like the Chandler with everything they want or need in regards to shopping, socializing, and eating out right within walking distance. The 2-level Mariano's Fresh Market is a gourmet grocery store that's found in a number of locations around Chicago and is especially well regarded in the city.

Lakeshore East Park isn't the only beautiful natural spot in the area. You've also got Millennium Park nearby and it's a picturesque place as well and has outdoor events like concerts and outdoor movies. It also has an outdoor skating rink in the winter. Hockey is not allowed, but you'll get plenty of high fives and nods of approval if you wear your Blackhawks jersey!

As mentioned, the Lakeshore East area continues to be in the midst of extensive redevelopment, and what's on its way definitely bodes well for anyone choosing to live in the area or considering Chandler real estate. The western edge of the Lakeshore East area has been earmarked for extensive development, and one of the most notable features will be a public entryway to Chicago's underground 'pedway—a network of bicycle-only paths that allow Chicago residents to avoid traffic and winter weather, get exercise, and be part of the solution by cycling to work or elsewhere in Chicago.

If cycling's not your thing then public transportation is well developed in Lakeshore East. The Randolph / Wabash Brown L-Train station is nearby. Lakeshore East's Millennium Station serves the Metra Electric District to University Park, Blue Island and South Chicago, and Metra access to other suburbs is also an option via the Ogilvie Transportation Center and Union Station.

In addition to local public schools, Lakeshore East will soon see the GEMS World Academy open a K-grade 5 private elementary school a grade 6-12 private middle / high school in 2 modern-designed towers. The schools will be able to accommodate 2,000 children and will be a welcome alternative for parents who favor a private school education for their children.​​​​
