Video: Lake Point Tower's Spectacular Views

To celebrate its 40th anniversary this fall, Lake Point Tower, a 70-story condo at 505 N. Lake Shore, between Grand and Illinois, a block west of Navy Pier, has created a four-minute video and a colorful brochure that feature spectacular lake and skyline views from its 720 units.

The only residential building east of Lake Shore Drive, Lake Point Tower was built in 1968 and converted to condos in 1988. Occupants have unobstructed, panoramic views of Lake Michigan and the city skyline. On a clear day, it is possible to see four states.

Dozens of photos of the building and its views can be found on Flickr. To visit the association's Web site, click here.
