Prime Location

Not far from the Mag Mile, this building has hardwood floors, spacious closets, and updated appliances. Cable is included, and internet, but the connection can be bad at times, especially when there's a storm. Great Gold Coast apartment that's in a nice area

Gold Coast Apartment Complex

I chose this apartment for the location. There is a treasure island located down the street, bars/restaurants nearby and shopping nearby. There is a lot of construction in the area with another high-rise unit being built right next door. The area is a bit louder at night due to the nearby bars and restaurants. There is overnight security and maintenance has also responded quickly when I put in a request.

It's All About Location

Our building is in the heart of Gold Coast. I like that anything we need is only steps away - bars/clubs, restaurants, convenience stores, grocery stores, red line/bus stops, beach, the list goes on. I feel safe no matter how early or late I am out because the streets always have people on them. The only downside is the size of our apartment. Our kitchen consists of a wall of not-quiet-full-sized appliances in our living room. It is definitely not new or updated by any standards, but worth it for the location and all of the amenities included.

Gold Coast Reviews

10 reviews
The neighborhood is great for sightseeing or grabbing a bite to eat with family and friends. Luxury shopping is within a 5 minute walk of the building. The only con about the building is that parking is $200 a month but the pro about it is that it is valet parking.
The Gold Coast is definitely and expensive neighborhood. While there are many expensive restaurants, bars, and shops, it is a great, central location.
I live on North Ave and Dearborn Parkway! The area is safe, close to the like and public transit. The only downside is that parking in the buildings is expensive and street cleaning is a huge pain from April-October if you have a car. I've been there two years and love it!
This location is really the best. You are walking distance to the loop and Michigan Ave, but it has a very neighborhood feel. And of course you are right by the beaches, tons of restaurants, and lots of shops.
I absolutely love this area... It is right in the middle of everything from downtown and River North, up to Old Town and Lincoln Park. It is wonderful in the summer with the beaches so close.
Pros: safe, beautiful view, a lot to do, nightlife, close to everything, great shopping, convenient, accessible.

Cons: Loud, busy, windy, expensive
My experience has been wonderful. I feel safe and there is always something to do, whether I want to go to a nearby festival or try out a trending restaurant or bar.
I've lived in the Gold Coast for 12 years. I love the neighborhood, but it lacks new developments (that are under a million dollars per unit). The Gold Coast is as safe as you're going to get in Chicago. There are so many places and other neighborhoods that are in walking distance. Being on the lakefront, I believe the Gold Coast is the best neighborhood in the city.
