Welcome to New East Side

Luxury and respite at the city’s core, where activities abound.

Living in New East Side means easily scoring the best picnic spots for free performances in Millennium Park, short lakefront hikes to a game at Soldier Field, direct access to The Art Institute of Chicago via the park and bridgeway, dining in style on a rooftop in the Loop or riverwalk patio—and retreating to one of the most well-designed, up-to-date residential buildings in the city for downtime.

Bordered by Michigan Avenue, the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, and Millennium Park, New East Side is a residential haven in the middle of a humming metropolis. Chicago’s newest neighborhood boasts modern high-rises with state-of-the-art amenities, comprehensive lake and city views, and green space galore.

The Neighbors

Young professionals, families, and empty-nesters all embrace the downtown lifestyle with remarkable garden space.

Even with the recently opened Maggie Daley Park drawing families and sprightly souls from all over the city to its interactive Play Garden and Ice Ribbon for play dates, people can find solace in the city here. Copious public green space keeps traffic within and around much of the neighborhood at bay.

What to Expect

A coveted village in the heart of the city surrounded by parks, water, and culture in the East Loop.

While Millennium Park, Chicago Riverwalk, Lake Michigan harbors, and Michigan Avenue are premium extensions of New Eastside, the neighborhood is also home to its own secluded 6-acre park, as well as exceptional restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and schools within a modest radius.

The Lifestyle

Uncommon urban serenity in a newly developing downtown community.

With the nearest “L” stop a half-mile away and minimal nightlife destinations, New Eastside is generally more tranquil than other downtown areas. However, dining, shopping, and other amenities can be found within the perimeter, and Michigan Avenue and the Loop are mere steps away.

Unexpected Appeal

With easy access to Chicago’s intricate pedway system, residents enjoy a hassle-free work commute to the Loop on foot.

Residents favor the neighborhood because it’s intertwined with city life, yet somewhat removed from the throngs of tourists. With pedestrian-dedicated walkways and tunnels, work commuters or anyone wanting to connect with businesses, hotels, and public transit in the Loop can do so expediently.

The Market

Characterized by cutting-edge high-rise condos as well as some contemporary townhomes with brick-and-glass fronts.

The newer residential towers have ultramodern amenities galore; many are energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly by design.

You'll Fall In Love With

A less-boisterous, more modernistic pocket within the city.
