455 E Waterside Dr, Chicago, IL, 60601
Neighborhood Info: Lakeshore East, Chicago Loop
The Lakeshore East apartments for rent at Cascade are located at 455 E. Waterside Dr and situated at the northeast corner of the downtown Chicago neighborhood’s large, grassy park. It will be developed in tandem with a neighboring condo tower and both buildings will share a parking garage and landscaped park that connects the apartments for rent at Cascade with the Lakefront Trail and Lower Lake Shore Drive.
The Lakeshore East neighborhood is unique among Chicago communities because of its relatively young age -- it was a patchwork of city-owned land and private rail yards prior to its redevelopment. Renters will appreciate that developers worked out a plan with Chicago city planners to turn this valuable pocket of lakeside land into a community where high-rise apartments mingle with lush, landscaped parks and provide exceptional views of Lake Michigan, Grant Park, and the Loop. Renters at Cascade will certainly be able to admire those world-class views from one of the 503 apartments planned for this new high-rise tower.
The neighborhood is a bit of a walk from the bustling streets of the Chicago Loop, but after a quick trek east on Randolph St, renters will uncover a hidden gem in downtown Chicago’s glass, steel and concrete cityscape. The buildings surround a nearly 5 acre park that includes a playground, water feature, dog friendly area, winding pathways and manicured lawn. This park, appropriately named Lakeshore East Park, acts as the communal front yard for many of the apartments in Lakeshore East. Several of the area’s most popular business are also found steps away from this park, such as III Forks, Subway, Eggy’s Diner, Mariano’s, Mezcalina Mexican and a CVS Pharmacy. The nearest school to Lakeshore East apartments at Cascade would be GEMS World Academy Chicago, and the journalism and communications school of Northwestern University is around the corner on E Wacker Dr.
