The American Furniture Mart was briefly the largest commercial building in the world when it was completed in the 1920s, losing that title to the Merchandise Mart.
The building, at 680 North Lake Shore Drive, was converted to condos in the early 80s and now houses three separate residential condo associations, a garage condo association, office space and retail uses that include a grocery store, a hardware store, a pharmacy, a coffee bar, restaurants and more.
Unit 1209 is a bright, south-facing 2-bedroom, 2-bath that has just come on the market, priced at $465,000. It has been beautifully updated with a showplace kitchen, hardwood floors and a luxurious master suite, dressing area and oversized bath.
680 Lake Shore Drive is steps away from Lurie Children’s and Northwestern Memorial Hospitals, parks and beaches.
