1516 North Lake Shore Drive

This is one of Chicago's most prestigious landmark properties and one of seven mansions remaining on Lake Shore Drive. Classic details and features remain throughout this magnificent property. The mansion and two-story coach house are situated on an approximately 50 X 170 foot-wide lot located within the City's Lakefront Protection District (Private Zone). The property has a current base Zoning District of RM-5 (Residential MultiUnit) and "Near North Historic Area II" as an overlay Zoning District, potentially allowing the existing structure to be internally remodeled for multiple dwelling units or other allowable non-residential uses.
