400 East Randolph Street Condominiums or simply 400 East Randolph (formerly Outer Drive East) is a 40-story high-rise in Chicago, Illinois, designed by Reinheimer & Associates. The building primarily consists of residential condominiums, though there are a few businesses and restaurants also located in the building. Situated on East Randolph Street on the New Eastside, the building sits between the Buckingham to its west and Harbor Point to its east. Two parks, Millennium Park and Lakeshore East Park, are immediately located to 400 East Randolph's south and north faces respectively. It is one of the buildings in the area that predates the new surrounding Lakeshore East development.

Built in 1963, 400 East Randolph is the oldest and most established building in the neighborhood. It was converted from apartments to condominiums in 1973. The building contains many assets such as a domed pool, a private bus that ferries residents around Chicago, and a recently remodeled restaurant on the seventh floor.

The building has a number of businesses including the Lakefront Children's Academy and a Segway rental company.
