Condos in the Gold Coast are a popular option for primary residences and second homes. They provide quick access to Chicago’s lakefront and the Magnificent Mile.
ALL GOLD COAST HIGH RISE BUILDINGS
*These are co-op apartment buildings. See Chicago co-op apartments vs. condos for the differences.
The boundaries of Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood are hotly debated. Some developers market their high-rises well south of Chicago Avenue as being “in the heart of the Gold Coast”. The Gold Coast Neighbors Association uses a map of the Gold Coast Historical District which extends down to Walton Street east of Michigan Avenue, but not west of Michigan Avenue.
We use boundaries that fall between those 2 extremes. It uses Chicago Avenue on the south coming west from Michigan Avenue, Clark Street on the west and North Avenue on the north. Coming down from the north Lake Michigan, East Lake Shore Drive and finally Michigan Avenue comprise the east border.
