Unexpected Appeal

A plethora of ways to explore right outside your front door.

Large living quarters at an affordable price point might be hard to come by here, but there are plenty of places within the neighborhood to help stretch your legs. North Pond Nature Sanctuary, park playgrounds, seasonal farmers markets like the Green City Market, big-box stores in Clybourn Corridor, and restaurant patios will all feel like extensions of your home.

The Market

Affordable apartments in vintage brownstones as well as expensive modern condos and revitalized single-family homes.

Loft condos in converted factories and warehouses can be found around the university and beautiful high-rises along the lake offer breathtaking views at high price points. Vintage walk-ups and condos can be more affordable, but prices rapidly escalate for rehabs and new construction.
