One of the best parts of living in the award-winning, master-planned Lakeshore East community is the convenience. This mixed-use urban development built by the Magellan Development Group is in the northeastern part of the Loop, in an area now called the New Eastside. It houses some of Chicago’s tallest buildings and prized architecture, ideally situated near Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. Even better, though, when you live here, everything is accessible. In addition to the city’s extensive public transportation system at your fingertips, you can enjoy many Lakeshore East transportation options. Whether you are commuting for work or for pleasure, it’s easy in this location.
As is true in neighborhoods throughout the Windy City, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) offers extensive routes in and around the area. Take a bus or train to work in the Loop or another part of the city, and you can get to your destination in minutes. Lakeshore East also offers one more unique transportation possibility with its private shuttle. Serving residents, this propane-powered shuttle van seats 13 and is an eco-friendly way to get around Chicago. The Lakeshore East transportation shuttle provides weekday service from Lakeshore East Sales Gallery into the Loop, and there’s no cost to residents. It also runs on Tuesday and Sunday afternoons to the Dominick’s grocery store on Columbus and Grand, with service every half-hour between noon and 3 p.m. Getting around couldn’t be easier or more convenient.
Thanks to all the Lakeshore East transportation options, you don’t need to own a vehicle. In addition to the public shuttle, there are many other road-travel options, such as buses, cabs or Zipcars. If you have a car, however, you’ll love easy access to Lakeshore East highways that can take you around the city, into the suburbs and beyond. While traffic is a given in any busy city, especially at rush hour, you can stay updated on current road conditions and gridlocks via Chicago news stations.
