This is an amazing first apartment in Chicago. I'm currently taking classes at Kellogg and I can walk to school every day. It's a few streets west of Michigan Ave. so you avoid most of the tourists but its also close to Michigan Ave. so there's a noticeable police presence, and it feels safe. Super close to lots of cute places to eat and the Northwestern Law/Business/Medical school campus.

What did you like most?

The interior just got redone before we moved it so it's really nice and very clean. I love the security people--I feel very safe.

What did you like least?

The lobby--but they're in the process of redoing it right now!

Great. Management isn't the greatest but they largely stay out of the way.

Gold Coast Chicago is a historic, luxurious neighborhood that has been developed significantly in the last few years. Within the Gold Coast neighborhood, you’ll find a blend of residences, restaurants, shopping, convenient access to Lake Michigan, and boisterous nightlife. Which makes it one of the more unique Chicago neighborhoods.

Gold Coast Chicago housing options are mostly high rises, both old and new, that almost always have spectacular views of Lake Michigan. Despite high prices, there are good deals to be found in older buildings that have been well-kept.

On weekdays tourists and residents frequent the area’s quaint parks, high-end shops, and restaurants. On weeknights, the area offers some of the best socializing and people-watching in the city. After hours, Division Street becomes a hub for those who don’t want the party to stop. Weekends on Oak Street Beach and Lake Shore Drive are where Gold Coast really shines. Gold Coasters enjoy the ability to walk, jog or bike along Lake Michigan via quick access to the Lakefront Trail.
