The 39-unit Benjamin Marshall-designed building at 1200 N Lake Shore Dr has a rooftop sundeck with the above views of Oak Street and North Avenue beaches.
The luxury condos at The Carlyle, 1040 N Lake Shore Dr, have what are arguably the best views of Oak Street beach.

The view of North Avenue beach from the roof deck at 1515 N Astor is partially obscured by LSD high-rises.
