"Urban and Contemporary with Homage to the Past"

Located in the heart of Streeterville and just steps from Michigan Avenue, East Pearson is contemporary and chic, with lots of historical panache as well! The street is home to the famous Water Tower Mall and the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Fashionable people grace the sidewalks at all times of the day. In fact, Oprah use to live in the Ritz Carlton Towers! Pearson also serves as the northern boundary for a great playground/park as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art. Many of the residential buildings, however, are older and exude the charm of years gone by. Parking is difficult, if not impossible, and there tends to be quite a bit of noise during the day, but as shoppers return home and children revert to their beds, the street quiets down and becomes predominantly residential. If you want to be steps from Lake Michigan and steps from the Mag Mile, close to one of the best hospitals in the country (Northwestern) and in proximity to fabulous cultural activities, East Pearson may be your home (if you can afford it!).
