Great vintage find in the heart of Chicago

40 E Oak is easily one of the best places I've lived. With its vintage charm and attentive staff, I couldn't ask for more. The building is kept nice and clean. There are great amenities like a gym, 24hr doorman, and Internet access included in rent.

Original Crown Molding, comfy and cozy

I absolutely love living at 40 E. Oak. It is prime location for shopping, site seeing, restaurants, bars, and best of all the lakefront. My only complaint was that they were raising the rent and asking me to leave exactly one year from my initial move in date. I would've most definitely committed to another year of living had they spoke to me and negotiated something. I have no complaints as far as service and maintenance.

Beautiful building, lots of light

This apartment is really lovely and the floor plans are unique. Some of the paint is chipping off the walls, but the building is very old so thats not altogether unsurprising. Management seems scattered but they are helpful when needed. Huge windows, and rooftop deck are a plus.

Gold Coast Reviews

31 reviews
The Gold Coast experience is a bit like two sides of a coin depending on your exact location. There's the supposedly infamous Viagra Triangle, but really, it's just all a bunch of ostentatiously wealthy people who literally mill around and block the entirety of the sidewalks all evening long. If you're more of an extrovert who has a lot of superfluous cash, that would probably be a fun place to be? I'm more of an introvert, so I'm happy once I pass Division (with its own subset of bars--again, there's a lot going on), and it's all architecturally stunning mansions and much quieter. In general, the most important thing that I can say about this neighborhood is that I have seen more dogs in this area at all hours than in any other city, period, and that's EASILY the best incentive to live in the Gold Coast.
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.
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 buildings in a great location - one block off the lake, but close to grocery stores, restaurants, etc. It's tucked away in the residential area of Gold Coast, so you get all the perks without it being loud or super expensive.
Gold Coast is probably the safest and most quiet neighborhood in the city. It does not have much of a nightlife, but that's exactly what you want from your home. It's easy to get anywhere in the city from here.
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.
The neighborhood is really active with shops, restaurants, bars, and gyms all within a mile radius. The night life is really convenient being so close to division and wells street.
Extremely dog friendly. 2 blocks to Oak St or North Ave beaches. Half hour walk to LP zoo, 15 min to Mag Mile. Beautiful landscaping all around. Can't be beat.
