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 boasts lively beaches, internationally-renowned boutiques, incredible cuisine, and vibrant nightlife, as well as beautiful parks and attractions.
Residents live among the best experiences the city has to offer – a venture 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 features 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 with all the modern amenities.
For those heading to work downtown, their “commute” is a quick journey down Michigan Avenue or an even faster ride on a CTA bus or train.
