Welcome to Gold Coast
Esteemed homes in a charming downtown neighborhood.
While the Gold Coast has a mostly serene, neighborly feel—with vintage architecture contrasting with more contemporary mid-rise and high-rise condo buildings—its bustling commercial areas can be found along strips of Oak, Rush, and Division Streets.
Dotted with architectural gems that range from vintage row houses to doorman high-rises, the Gold Coast is a quiet, well-preserved retreat in downtown Chicago. Its tree-lined streets host many of the city’s most prestigious homes, and afford residents superior access to Lake Michigan.
What to Expect:
Residential character and close proximity to the lakefront, complete with beaches that bookend the neighborhood.
A largely residential neighborhood with an array of architectural attributes, the Lake Michigan-adjacent community offers first-rate access to the south end of Lincoln Park and Chicago beaches at Oak Street and North Avenue.
A rotation of lakefront recreation and fine dining by foot or taxi.
From walking the lakefront path and people-watching at one of the beach bars to indulging at renowned restaurants, the Gold Coast is a trove of prominent spots.
A surprisingly tranquil ambience despite its central location.
Since the neighborhood bar scene doesn't extend north of Division Street and a significant portion of properties are vintage buildings, the Gold Coast is a prime location for quiet daytime and twilight walks.
A variety of mid-rise and high-rise condos as well as co-ops in vintage and contemporary styles.
The Gold Coast has a sizeable selection of condos, albeit compact spaces at steep prices, and even a variety of affordable walk-up apartments compared to other downtown neighborhoods. Family-sized rentals are rare, and pricey when available.
