An Inside Look on the Beautiful Gold Coast of Chicago

The Gold Coast is oft spoken of with the hush of aspiration or the sigh of longing to be back. Part of Chicago's Near North Side community, the GC neighborhood affords its famously loyal residents the comforts of privacy and seclusion as well as the delights of a festive nightlife. Founded after the Great Chicago Fire, millionaire Potter Palmer transformed wetlands and swamp with the Palmer Mansion. The enamored elite took to the new territory with aplomb and the city was reborn.

Now row houses skirt against mansions and manses that give way to high-rises with beautiful lake views and vibrant cityscapes. A city within a city. What Montmartre is to Paris, What the Upper East Side is to Manhattan, the Gold Coast is to Chicago while never losing the invigorating spirit that birthed it. 

A walk along the sand beach laden with adventures and possibilities. A turn and a world of skyscraper horizons, one-of-a-kind boutiques on oak street, and the convergence of haute cuisine and raucous nightlife that Rush and Division open beneath your feet. The Gold Coast is the destination of choice for many North Shore residents looking for a pied-à-terre or a new permanent residence in the city.
