The Gold Coast
Chicago’s Wealthiest Neighborhood
The Gold Coast is Chicago’s wealthiest neighborhood, with stores and restaurants catering to a luxury lifestyle. Calling the Gold Coast home, even for a short time, means you have access to high-end shopping, world-class restaurants and the relaxing Oak Street beach.
70 E Walton is located just a short block from the famous Oak Street. Oak Street is Chicago’s Rodeo Drive, with exclusive clothing stores, spas, hair salons, and jewelers.
Oak Street staples include Tessuti, the men’s clothier. Prada, Hermes and Yves Saint Laurent are also found on this prime Gold Coast street.
The Gold Coast also includes the Rush Street district, with its upscale restaurants and cafes. Spots like the 3rd Coast Cafe and Wine Bar, Bistrot Zinc, and the Original House of Pancakes provide a wide selection of fantastic food options in the heart of the Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast has been a location of choice for many famous architects and filmmakers. Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest” was filmed in the Ambassador Hotel. Frank Lloyd Wright called the Gold Coast home at one time. In fact, Frank Lloyd Write and Louis Sullivan shared the design of the Gold Coast’s Charnley-Persky House.
When you have had your fill of high-end shopping and restaurants, you can enjoy some of Chicago’s best walking in the Gold Coast. The tree-lined streets and location on Lake Michigan provides both long-term and short-term residents of the Gold Coast fantastic paths and views.
