Gold Coast rose to prominence as one of Chicago's most historic and opulent neighborhoods in the aftermath of the Great Fire. As the neighborhood rebuilt in the late 1800s, millionaire developers transformed its swampy beachfront into a prestigious community populated by the mansion-filled streets of the Astor District. The area remained popular with Chicagoans of the time, who enjoyed leisurely drives along Lake Shore Drive, further popularizing its development. Even as inhabitants enjoy more modern housing options like high-rise towers, the historic mansions and gravitas of the neighborhood still remain.
Residents of Gold Coast are typically established Chicago power players who can afford to abide in its historic single-family mansions or high-rise apartments, co-ops, and condos like 11 E. Walton. Living in the neighborhood certainly has its perks, as it offers easy access to some of Chicago's greatest beaches, parks, dining, museums, and history.
From the Astor Street District's historic mansions to Gold Coast's shared cultural icon with Streeterville — the Museum of Contemporary Art — the neighborhood is at no loss for impressive Chicago landmarks. One could not, however, mention Gold Coast without in the same breath mentioning its Magnificent Mile, so inextricably linked are the two. The upscale shopping along Michigan Avenue, even of the "window" variety, is one of the Windy City's enduring landmarks.
