About Gold Coast
When you reach the Gold Coast, you know you have arrived. In one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in America, you’ll find some of the city’s most famous residents and the world-class real estate they call home.
Within one square mile, the Gold Coast offers lively beaches, internationally-renowned boutiques, incredible cuisine and vibrant nightlife. It also has a number of top public and private schools, beautiful parks, and cultural attractions.
Residents live just a few steps away from the best the city has to offer – a stroll down Michigan Avenue, a day at the beach, shopping along Oak Street, dinner at an award-winning restaurant or cocktails with a view atop the building formerly known as the Hancock Tower.
From the stately mansions on Astor Street to the magnificent high-rises overlooking the lake, the Gold Coast offers a surprising variety of housing choices. In addition to the historic apartment buildings that line Lake Shore Drive, there are walk-ups, townhomes and a number of contemporary high-rises offering all the modern amenities.
Horse-drawn carriages await those who enjoy traveling in style down Michigan Avenue. For those heading to work downtown, their “commute” is a brisk walk or a quick ride on a CTA bus or train.
