155 N Harbor Drive, Harbor Point
This iconic steel and glass building perched, just south of the river where Randolph meets the drive, offers commanding views of the lake and the park.
The building’s eastern exposure is an expansive, forever unobstructed Lake Michigan as it reaches out to the horizon. In the warmer months, DuSable and Monroe Harbor are filled with sailboats and yachts, and are easily accessible from the buildings lower level which offers a path to the lakefront underneath Lake Shore Drive. The Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Navy Pier, Soldier Field, and Sears Tower are visible from various floor plans. The south and west exposures offer unparalleled panoramic views over Grant Park, Millennium Park, and the Michigan Avenue skyline.
Residents of this upscale condominium building enjoy a rich set of amenities and services, unmatched anywhere in the city. The Harbor Point Health Club offers a full compliment of cardiovascular equipment including treadmills, elliptical trainers, and rowing machines. The club is surrounded by 12 flat panel television screens. For weight training, there are many weight machines and a separate free-weight room with barbells and benches. Two regulation racquetball courts with inlaid wooden lines are the best in the city; one offers a descending glass basketball backboard and hoop at the touch of a button. A separate aerobics & yoga room stocked with mats, exercise balls, and a ballet bar, and fully equipped locker rooms each with their own steam room and dry heat sauna complete the clubs features.
The indoor pool is one of the largest and deepest found in a Chicago residential building. Sunlight pours in above the pool from the large domed skylight, and the pool deck has wrap-around windows that offer views of the lake, skyline, and adjoining sundeck. In the corner, a large hot tub looks out onto the Columbia Yacht Club and Navy Pier. Just outside the pool area is the sundeck and garden. One of the largest outdoor spaces for a building in Chicago, the sundeck provides lounge chairs, hammocks, and a number of umbrella-covered tables. Trees and flowers surround the west side of the garden offering respite from the summer sun. In 2006 Harbor Point won a national award for their landscaping, and the garden leaves no question as to why.
Harbor Point also offers two large full-service function/hospitality rooms with catering kitchens. Both function rooms are wrapped with large windows that look out to the lake, and open to a large tree-lined terrace. On the concourse level, residents enjoy access to a lounge, on-site dry cleaners, a full service market, and a spacious and bright laundry room with attached library overlooking the drive and Navy Pier. The lounge, pool, and sundeck offer complimentary wireless internet access.
The association-owned-and-operated garage offers some of the best parking rates in the city for its residents and their guests. Both valet and reserved parking are available. Harbor Point has twenty-four hour door staff, an on-site engineer and an on-site management office. This expertly maintained building is a model for fiscal responsibility and offers a thirty-year track record without a special assessment, and maintains a multimillion dollar reserve fund.
