THE BASICS

Gold Coast: The incomparable Gold Coast, one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in America, is where you can find many of Chicago's most famous residents - and the world class real estate they call home. From the timeless mansions of Astor Street to the magnificent high-rises of Lake Shore Drive, the Gold Coast is truly an inspirational setting from which to savor life in the Windy City.


Despite the neighborhood's well-documented affluence, the Gold Coast real estate choices and prices are surprisingly diverse. Housing styles are equally diverse. In addition to the Gold Coast apartment buildings that line Lake Shore Drive, the area also offers Gold Coast condos, walk-ups, town homes, row homes and a number of contemporary high-rises.


Within one square mile, the Gold Coast offers lively beaches, internationally renowned boutiques, incredible cuisine and vibrant nightlife. It also happens to be one of Chicago's most family-friendly neighborhoods offering a number of top public and private schools, beautiful parks and cultural attractions.


River North/River West: Stretching from the Chicago River to Chicago Avenue, west of The Magnificent Mile, River North is an old loft district that came alive with art galleries and restaurants quickly followed by a number of hip, urban homebuyers. Chicago's biggest office building, the Merchandise Mart anchors the southern edge of the neighborhood, while just a few blocks east, Donald Trump's 92-story Trump International Hotel and Tower Chicago is redefining the city skyline.


Dozens of new residential developments have hit the neighborhood in recent years in River West & River North. Buyers can choose from classic timber lofts, upscale row homes and contemporary high-rises ranging in price from about $300,000 to several million dollars. Development of Real Estate in River North has also pushed west of the Chicago River into an area dubbed River West, which includes a number of new condominium buildings and recently popularized River West Lofts.


Today, River North is home to many of Chicago's premier eateries, including Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill and Topolobompo, Japonais, Naha, Coco Pazzo and a number of fine steak houses. Both River North and River West are packed with shopping, entertainment and nightlife, including some of the cities trendiest clubs and well-known favorites like the House of Blues. Before and after work, the city's movers and shakers congregate at East Bank Club, the largest stand-alone health club in Chicago and one of the largest in the country.


Streeterville: Streeterville, located south of the Gold Coast and north of the Loop, is one of Chicago's oldest neighborhoods — and one of its newest. Within the last two decades, dozens of new Streeterville Properties have been built, including high-rises, hotels, stores and institutions, springing up around the spot where Captain George Wellington Streeter famously ran aground, laying claim to the area in 1886.


The majority of homes for sale in Streeterville are located within high-rise buildings, but the architectural styles are wide-ranging. They include pre-war high-rises, a collection of Mies van der Rohe buildings, easily identifiable landmarks like the John Hancock Center and Water Tower Place, and a full assortment of contemporary new construction. Sprinkled throughout the neighborhood are smaller mid-rise buildings, a few walk-ups and even the occasional town home or single-family.


Streeterville includes such notable attractions as The Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place and the Museum of Contemporary Art. It is also home to Northwestern Memorial Hospital's new, state-of-the-art medical campus and the downtown campuses of Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. Streeterville is also the site of the proposed world's tallest building, The Chicago Spire, by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. For recreation, Streeterville offers a number of smaller pocket parks and playgrounds, but the lakefront is never more than a couple of blocks away. Dining out is never a problem in Streeterville. Countless restaurants exist to serve local residents, the office crowd, and the business travelers and tourists who cascade down Michigan Avenue practically nonstop.
