Gold Coast Chicago Condo Buildings Indoor Pool

Many Gold Coast condo buildings offer residents access to all sorts of premium common features and amenities. And while round the clock door service and heated garage parking certainly have their advantages, there’s just something about having easy and direct access to an indoor swimming pool inside your building that Chicagoans love. So, if you’re looking for that perfect Gold Coast condo but an indoor pool is also a must-have amenity, here’s a closer look at several buildings you’ll want to consider during your search.  

950 N. Michigan

950 N. Michigan, otherwise known as One Magnificent Mile, is conveniently located where River North, Streeterville, and the Gold Coast all intersect. The building was built in 1983 and has 57 stories, and inside you’ll find 181 individual units that have floor plans that range from 1- 3-bedrooms. The building is pet friendly and comes with an incredible indoor swimming pool, but it also provides residents with access to an exercise room, a doorman, a health club, a restaurant, a sauna, storage, a sundeck, and a whirlpool. There is also a garage on-site for residents, and with prices recently averaging around $266 per square foot, there’s plenty of value here as well.

1000 N. Lake Shore Plaza

Equally tall but slightly older is 1000 N. Lake Shore Plaza, a building that also sits in the heart of downtown and just down the street from 950 N. Michigan. Originally built back in 1964, 1000 N. Lake Shore stands 55 stories high and houses nearly 140 individual units. Condo sizes range from 1 to 3+ bedrooms, and the building includes some wonderful amenities along with an indoor swimming pool, including an exercise room, party room, extra storage, vale/cleaner, sundeck, and more. Just steps from both Michigan Avenue and Chicago’s scenic lakefront, there is a lot to love about this Gold Coast high-rise with an indoor pool, including its affordability. Although you may see prices exceed $1 million for larger upper floor units, smaller 1-bedroom condos can also be found inside 1000 N. Lake Shore for under $200,000 at times.
