1036 N. Dearborn

In this exclusive neighborhood we offer premier downtown apartments where everyone is welcome. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and at one time the second most affluent neighborhood in America, our Gold Coast Apartments are nothing short of your Xanadu.

Tucked alongside charismatic River North and Streeterville, the Gold Coast's storied streets and eye-popping mansions and row houses are almost literary; very much like the world-renowned shopping and dining that dot the area. Start at the shops and boutiques in Old Town, end at the restaurants and nightclubs along Rush, and you will quickly notice our downtown apartments offer an exhilarating lifestyle.

Explore further the Chicago map and discover Navy Pier, Northwestern University Chicago, North Avenue Beach, Second City, the original Playboy Mansion, and one of Frank Lloyd Wright's homes. Go shopping along the Magnificent Mile - some of the best in the world - where you'll find diamond tiaras at Harry Winston, ladies' accessories at Kate Spade and fine men's clothing at Tessuti - not to mention great bargains at Zara. Head to Gibson's for prime steak, Le Colonial for French-Vietnamese fusion, and get the four-star treatment Italian-style, at Spiaggia. With dining like this at your fingertips, you may rarely use your gourmet kitchen in your Gold Coast apartment.

Talk about your sweet sampling. Rarely will you encounter a neighborhood as rich in character as Chicago's Gold Coast. It's the perfect marriage of something old and something new, or more fittingly, timeless and contemporary. After you see it for the first time, you'll want us as your Gold Coast apartment. The instant that happens, b sure to let us know.

West Loop was once home to factories, wholesale markets, and warehouses. Now it's known for Fulton Market, Restaurant Row, and being a creative hub for artist and designers alike. While still having the Neo-Noir look of gritty and industrial buildings, West Loop now has greener areas such as Union Park.

Many of the industrial and historical buildings make West Loop a rooted neighborhood, one of them being Hull House. If you like to get your fresh groceries locally, then French Market is the perfect setting to be. a marketplace that is held throughout the whole year inside a building on Clinton St. There's also as many bars as there are restaurants, and no two are the same. You can start your night inside a sushi bar, walk next door to a sports bar and after the game you can stroll into a beer garden. If you're looking to fill that creative spot in your apartment, you'll be within a short walk of any gallery, chic boutique, design stores, sculpture, or a showroom. Union Park is another well known area in West Loop, the park hosts Pitchfork Festival in Chicago, a piece of Chicago's historic music scene. The park keeps you active with options to join seasonal sports like swimming, basketball, baseball and volleyball.

One of the very exciting things about West Loop is its accessibility. The Grand Ave bus will get you through most of the neighborhood. Both the Blue and the Pink line trains run through the neighborhood. The infamous Union Station can also take you to new places throughout the city and beyond.
