Named Coast at Lakeshore East to highlight the nautical theme of the community, the sleek 46-story rental tower stands at 345 E. Wacker Drive, directly east of the Swissotel at the northwest corner of Lakeshore East. The tower is designed by the highly-acclaimed architectural firm of bKL Architecture.
Coast contains 515 apartments consisting of one, two and three bedrooms, 17,985 square feet of retail space, a 277-car parking facility and 18,999-square-feet of indoor and outdoor amenities that include an outdoor pool and landscaped deck, a fully-equipped fitness center, resident lounge, business center, and indoor spa area and more.
Coast’s modern design is described by BKL as a composition of light and transparency. A curtain wall on the east and west facades is a combination of translucent and fritted glass combined with aluminum while continuous inset balconies on the north and south elevations provide extraordinary views of the Chicago skyline, Lake Michigan and Grant/Millennium Parks.
