Michigan Avenue – where millions of people come every year to enjoy world-class shopping, dining, and culture – is the lifeblood of Chicago's vibrant Streeterville/Magnificent neighborhood. Aside from a small number of low and mid-rise apartment buildings constructed in the 1920s, service-oriented high-rise buildings are the mainstay of this downtown neighborhood.
In recent years, several new luxury condo buildings have joined the already dense landscape. Streeterville extends from Lake Michigan west to Michigan Avenue and from the Chicago River north to East Lake Shore Drive. The Magnificent Mile extends directly west from Streeterville to State Street, with the same north and south boundaries.
