A while back Chicago Magazine's Dennis Rodkin announced that he would be doing more of his videos solo, unaccompanied by an agent or owner, and he's followed that plan in a recent visit to a Benjamin Marshall classic.
The 27-unit co-op building at 999 Lake Shore Drive was designed by Marshall, and was the first building built along East Lake Shore Drive.
In the video, Rodkin visits Unit 3A, a 4-bedroom, 5-bath with a living room that is "like a little Benjamin Marshall museum" with "finishes entirely chosen by him," but with the dark mahogany painted white. The unit's floor plan has been reworked substantially to open up the space and attune it more to the way people live today.
Rodkin also visits the building's roof deck, with its "phenomenal" views.
