Lake Point Tower, with its Y-shape and all-glass curves, is the only high-rise in Chicago east of Lake Shore Drive. Architects George Schipporeit and John Heinrich were both students of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Its odd shape is carefully calculated so that all units offer unobstructed lake views and so that residents cannot see into each other's windows. The building's podium is topped by an expansive 2.5 acre rooftop garden designed by renowned landscape architect Alfred Caldwell. Many celebrities have called Lake Point Tower home, including: Sammy Sosa, Scottie Pippen, Tom Cruise, David Axelrod and Alice Cooper.

Behind the Scenes Access: Experience the Alfred Caldwell rooftop garden above the building's parking and retail podium.
