8080 Lakeshore

Chicago, IL

Project Summary

Cushman & Wakefield’s Capital Markets Group is the exclusive advisor to the property's ownership in the sale of 8080 Lakeshore. The offering consists of 430 acres situated directly on Lake Michigan with Lakeshore Drive access.

Located 10 miles south of Downtown Chicago, 8080 Lakeshore is one of the largest contiguous infill, waterfront parcels currently available for sale in the United States.  Formerly U.S. Steel’s South Works Mill,  8080 Lakeshore offers 430 acres of land nestled on over three (3) miles of pristine Lake Michigan shoreline. 

The property’s diverse terrain offers unparalleled views of downtown Chicago, easy access to the I-90 and I-94 expressways as well as public transportation.  In addition, the construction of a new four-lane extension of Lakeshore Drive was completed in late 2013. This extension runs through the site, providing two miles of highway frontage. 

8080 Lakeshore’s proximity to the prestigious Hyde Park and historic Pullman neighborhoods, world class institutions (University of Chicago, Future Obama Presidential Library) and state-of-the-art industry (Ford Supplier Park, Method Home Products, future CTA car production facility) enables a wide variety of potential uses including, but not limited to, the following:  industrial, research park, entertainment, residential and/or mixed-uses, retail, and office/commercial.
