Neal Zucker moves in on Lake Shore Drive

Neal Zucker is moving into a 2,700-square-foot unit in the Carlyle Building on Lake Shore Drive, the Chicago Tribune reported. Zucker is well-known in the Chicago community for his philanthropy. The 46-year-old is co-founder, president and CEO of Corporate Cleaning Services, the largest Chicago window washing firm that is all-union. Zucker has lived and worked on the Gold Coast for almost 20 years.

Zucker closed the purchase on June 11 and paid $1.1 million for the five-bedroom, 3.5-bath unit, snatching it up at $180,000 under the listing price. The unit has two large balconies, custom lighting and marble baths, to name a few notable features described by the Tribune.

Zucker’s previous residence is now up for sale, located a few blocks away on the Gold Coast as well, according to the newspaper. His two-bedroom, 1,400-square-foot condo is listed for $524,900. Those looking for luxurious real estate in Chicago could consider Zucker’s prior abode, and nestle in among the elite on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan.

The Gold Coast is known for being one of “Chicago’s most affluent neighborhoods, where new mansions continue to spring up alongside the grand residences built by Chicago’s 19th century elite,” according to the Explore Chicago website. Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive borders the neighborhood on the east. The Drive runs alongside the famous lakefront path where Gold Coast residents jog, bicycle and take in the splendid views of the water and skyline. The path stretches for almost 19 miles along the shore of Lake Michigan, and winds past beaches, playgrounds and various sporting facilities such as golf courses, soccer fields and tennis courts.
