Gold Coast

Welcome to Gold Coast

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.

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.

An educated, affluent blend of young families and well-established professionals.


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 sports and recreation, fine dining, shopping, and cultural attractions 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.


Tranquil evenings and strolls past eye-catching architecture.

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.


Its pedestrian appeal, featuring high-end retail and dining selections.

Just off Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, the chic designer stores and posh salons lining Oak Street will help work up an appetite for the neighborhood’s Michelin-starred restaurants.
