AROUND THE BLOCK

River North:  Cultured by day, swelling with energy by night.Dormant factories and industrial warehouses adapted by artists and entrepreneurs into workspaces in the 1970s and 1980s have since paved the way for a surge of new businesses. Today, the profoundly populated, culturally-rich area with converted lofts and stretches of upscale retail is always buzzing.

What To Expect:  A vibrant area is dense with shops, art galleries, office spaces, restaurants, nightclubs, and people.The round-the-clock atmosphere attracts people from all over, 24/7.

The Lifestyle:  Infinite entertainment options within walking distance.Just across the bridge from the Loop, this stylish, urban neighborhood has become a go-to district for art aficionados, shopaholics, foodies, and cocktail connoisseurs to live, work, and play.

Unexpected Appeal:  A bonafide playground for grown-ups to explore at their leisure.Due to its downtown location and lack of single-family homes, it can be difficult settling down with a brood here. But it’s perfect for those looking to absorb all the city has to offer sans young children.

Image title

Image title

The Market:  Luxury high-rises along the river and Victorian-era homes on tree-lined streets.Most buildings are an enticing mix of mid-rise, turn-of-the-century lofts as well as coveted condos and rentals in high-rises with skyline views, all at skyward price points.

You'll Fall In Love With:  Dramatic skyline views, varied architecture, and shops galore.Some of Chicago’s oldest buildings still stand here as symbolic reminders of the city’s rebirth after the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. The bridges and riverwalk offer incredible perspectives of these soaring, iconic structures, so be sure to look up for a moment when traversing from shop to shop.
