A city of neighborhoods.
Chicago Gold Coast History
When Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood got its start in the late 1800s. Most of Chicago’s wealthy businessmen were living south of Roosevelt Avenue in the Prairie District when businessman Potter Palmer bought up land and built his home in the heart of what is now the Gold Coast. Following in Potter’s footsteps, more wealthy Chicagoans migrated north. There is a mix of housing that includes everything from pied-de-Terre and starter condominiums the area remains a who’s who of Chicago’s prominent residents. There is a wonderful collection of Victorian-inspired greystone rowhomes.
Streeterville is originally named for Caps Streeter, the area is now a medical district and home to Northwestern Memorial and Prentice Women’s Hospital, the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital as well as a community of high rise luxury and condominium buildings, including the John Hancock Building.
Chicago Gold Coast Restaurants, Shops and Attractions
While tourists come to see “the Magnificent Mile” (Michigan Avenue), locals love RL, RH and the MCA. The New East Side emerged on the southern banks of the Chicago River and the northern end of Millenium Park, convenient to the loop via the underground pedway as well as the cultural and sporting attractions: Harris Theater, Art Institute of Chicago, Museum Campus, Burnham Harbor, and Soldier Field.
Average commute times are excellent with under 10 minutes to the loop, 30 minutes to O’Hare, and 20 minutes to Midway. Easy access to expressways and Lake Shore Drive.
