Situated at 1040 N. Lake Shore Drive, this luxury development in the prestigious Gold Coast neighborhood offers would-be homeowners the perfect spot to settle down in comfort while enjoying the conveniences of urban living. This handsome residential high-rise was constructed in the mid-1960s, but it still retains its elegance and charm and is currently managed by Draper & Kramer Management Company. The building is located just across the street from the lakefront and beach, and at 40 floors, residents of the Carlyle have some of the best lake views that can be found in Chicago.
Undoubtedly one of Chicago's most affluent neighborhoods, the Gold Coast is a mix of grand 19th century mansions, luxury high-rise condominiums and renovated gray and brownstone walkups. Here, old and new seamlessly blend together with the connecting thread of wealth and status. Shaded avenues, landscaped walkways and prim wrought-iron fences add to the neighborhood's refined appeal. A stroll among the massive stone structures that once housed many of Chicago's wealthiest and most influential families is breathtaking. In fact, Gold Coast neighborhood architecture and history is celebrated by annual walking tours sponsored by various architectural foundations.
