The elevator waits can be brutal sometimes! The staff seem to only interact with those who have resided at the building longer. What few interactions I’ve had with staff (getting locked out of apartment, trying to receive a package) have all be pretty negative. I wish more than anything that upon moving into the unit that your received some sort of “here’s our amenities and how to utilize them”. Haven chosen this apartment via a virtual tour, I had to go off any information provided at that and figure the rest out on my own which was super stressful. For example, where the gym was located, how to load money onto the laundry card, what to do with recycling, etc.

What did you like most?

The size for the money! Large units!

What did you like least?

The walls scuff very easily and the floors are laminate, which can be difficult to clean. The front door is so heavy.

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.
