Gold Coast Chicago Neighborhood

Chicago’s Gold Coast has a reputation of being one of the city’s most fashionable neighborhoods, and it is home to some of the most impressive high-rise condo buildings that can be found anywhere. The neighborhood is located at the northern tip of Chicago’s premiere shopping district on Michigan Avenue, and according to the Chicago Tribune, the Gold Coast is the second most affluent neighborhood in the country after New York’s Upper East Side.

Beginning at Lake Shore Drive, which runs along the lakefront, some of the city’s most elegant high-rises emerge, giving way to taller hotels and office buildings towards Michigan Avenue and beyond. The 100-floor John Hancock Center is easily the most recognizable building in the Gold Coast, and it occupies a full city block along Michigan Avenue between Chestnut Street and Delaware Place. The Hancock Center, by the way, is a mixed-use building that has about 700 condos that are mixed in with offices and restaurants.
