Which brings us to the name – “Lakeview.” One would think the name represents a view of Lake Michigan, however this is not the case. The name is a reference to the Hotel Lake View, built in 1854. This historic hotel can be seen at the intersection of Lake Shore Drive and Sheridan Road.

A walk through this stunning neighborhood, one might glance overhead and be struck by the stately mature trees and balconies, often adorned with flowers and potted plants. Homebuyers have their pick – from remodeled condos to graystone townhomes, to three-level family homes or the luxurious penthouse. The variety in homes attracts a diverse group of residents, from young professionals to families, spanning generations; of course, this cultivates a well-rounded community – one of the features Lakeview residences appreciate most about their neighborhood.
