  • Developer: Harold L. Perlman
  • The addresses used by the buildings on this corner can be confusing. Both 1000 Lake Shore Drive and 1000 Lake Shore Plaza are part of the same property. 1000 Lake Shore Drive has the city legal address of 1002-1010 North Lake Shore Drive, but the county legal address of 1000-1010 North Lake Shore Drive. 1000 Lake Shore Plaza has the city legal address of 130 East Oak Street and the county legal address of 1000 North Lake Shore Drive.
  • Upon its completion, the developer of this building donated the rights to this roof to WTTW television for its broadcasting antenna.

  Five Stars for location and value and service and amenities. Zero for exterior appearance.The advantage of living IN this building is that I never need look AT it. Built during a nadir in US architecture and certainly not an entry for any of the fine Chicago high-rises . Glazed brick exterior is problematic as well as unsightly. Much confusion prevailed for many, many years with emergency vehicles coming to the WRONG 1000 building on Lake Shore. Lake Shore Plaza is not a REAL street in the cityâonly recently do the GPS systems recognize the designation. 130 East Oak, our legal assigned address, gets the mail here faster. Since 1964, the mail has been hand sorted for the two buildings: 1000 Lake Shore Driveâlegal address is more accurately 129 East Bellevue and 1000 Lake Shore Plaza's legal address is 130 East Oak Street. I think there is as much cachet to living on Oak or Bellevue as their is in having a Lake Shore Drive address especially when their is no emergency access to either building from Lake Shore!

  The top part of the building really makes it look bad. Architecture of this building could of been better

  The building location is one of the most visible and prominant in all of Chicago. It is too bad the architecture is so ulgy. I think this apartment building would be a great candidate for recladding.

  This building is undistinguished at best and has the look of the 60s-70s era. Even worse is the 1000 N. Lake Shore at Bellevue. Some of my clients won't even walk into the building. It really reflects the ugliest of the 50s architecture.
