seems pricey for what you get

Feb 2016

The management, front door staff, and maintenance crew are always very very courteous and friendly. If I ever needed something fixed (leaky toilet, broken washing machine), it was fixed promptly.

What did you like most?

The location of this building - it's far enough away from Michigan Ave that the streets aren't clogged with tourists, but close enough to be able to shop at my convenience. I also really love the in-unit washer/dryer, parking, and the private dog park, which my dog very much enjoys.

What did you like least?

Noise - hallway (especially Friday/Saturday nights), hearing neighbors through walls, sirens from street level.

Jul 2015

Its really been great living at Chestnut Towers. Its an unbeatable location. I also enjoy the homely vibe they create - i look forward to seeing the doorman at the end of my day, always chit chat with management when I run into them and just an overall enjoyable living experience

What did you like most?

The non-hotel vibe of the luxury rental building. Most of them start feeling like a hotel and not a home e.g. Eugene Terrace

What did you like least?

Too many dogs! Its a very pet friendly building and we don't have a pet. It was never a problem / nuisance. However if I had to pick something I liked least this would be it.

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.
