The East Lake Shore Drive District is a historic district in the Near North Side community area of Chicago, Illinois. It includes eight buildings at 140 E. Walton, 179-229 E. Lake Shore Drive, and 999 N. Lake Shore Drive designed by Marshall and Fox and Fugard & Knapp and the opposing park. It was designated a Chicago Landmark district on April 18, 1985.[1] These buildings include seven luxury high rise apartment buildings and the Drake Hotel.[2] Note that neither of the buildings on either end of the district actually has an East Lake Shore Drive address.[2] This district is located within the Streeterville neighborhood and overlaps with the Gold Coast.
