Views from The Admiral at the Lake
One of the many advantages of The Admiral at the Lake’s location is the fantastic view. Residents can look outside their window or step onto their balcony to take in the sweeping lake landscape or the magnificent skyline. In the words of Mark Twain, “She is novelty; for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time.”
