Residences in the area are primarily modern, high-rise luxury apartments and condominiums (especially on the lakefront), although all types of living are available including cooperatives, town homes, and brownstone and greystone single-family homes. Many of the interior streets reveal fabulous mansions and high-rise condo buildings, tucked away from Lake Shore drive, in an otherwise highly trafficked area and incredible scenery including old trees, manicured parkways with planters, vintage streetscapes, etc. Buildings on Lake Shore Drive offer an unobstructed, panoramic view of Lake Michigan with Oak Street Beach only a few steps away. Today's Gold Coast retains all of the prestige and reputation that it has enjoyed over the last century. Its name continues to signal wealth, and its inhabitants are intensely proud of the neighborhood in which they live.
