Mies' Lake Shore Drive Apartments being restored

    I've written a lot about the restoration going on at 860-880 Lake Shore Drive by Mies van der Rohe. It's time to start showing some pictures of the buildings that look better than they have in years. Here's one of the new plaza being laid down.

    I'll try to post more photos over the next few days, culminating in a spectacular shot of the two buildings, taken from Olive Park, across the water, showing just how crisp and jet black the new paint job looks. The two buildings really pop out now, as they should. After these two zen-like high-rises, the rest is background.

    Big thanks to Marc Boxerman for the photos.
