Solid experience, you get what you pay for.

What did you like most?

Decently sized space, clean and quiet.

What did you like least?

No in unit laundry (sort of had to reach for this).

Jan 2016

Very good experience. I feel I get my value for what I pay for. The pool scene could be better, but that is just due to poor location (very cloudy/shaded). The parking situation is not ideal but not horrible. The parking deck is open to the public and bums chill in the stairwell.

What did you like most?

Great view of the city for the price. Door staff is great. Fairly priced (except for parking).

What did you like least?

Just the parking. Could also use a business center.

Jul 2015

Good place to start in Chicago. Very convenient location, and posh neighborhood. Tenants are again a mixed bag. Not much interaction between tenants.

What did you like most?

Location is great. Brand new gym and laundry facilities.

What did you like least?

No dishwasher in all units.

Gold Coast

Nightlife · Lake Views · Historic · Luxury

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.
