Near North Side Real Estate

The Near North Side is one of the 77 community areas that make up the city of Chicago. Additionally, it is one of the neighborhoods that make up “downtown,” the others being the Near West Side, Near South Side, and the Loop. Of the four, Near North Side has the highest concentration of skyscrapers and the highest population. The boundaries of this community are the Chicago River on the south and west, Lake Michigan on the east, and North Avenue.

Near North Side is known for its affluence, examples of which can be found in the shopping district of the Magnificent Mile, the Gold Coast, and Navy Pier. The area boasts a near limitless supply of attractions and activities — with museums, sights and shopping, theater, and fine architecture in abundance. There are also large numbers of fantastic restaurants, bars, and trendy clubs to keep you entertained no matter your interests.

High-rise buildings dominate the area and the housing options, with many offering sweeping views of the city and the lake, as well as full amenities. Some single-family homes are to be found in the Gold Coast section, as well as some two and three-flats. Both buyers and renters will find opportunities here, although prices do tend towards the high side, since the Near North Side is crowded with residents and attractions.

As a part of the downtown area, Near North Side enjoys access to all the CTA rail lines, which converge in the Loop just a short walk away. Bus lines are also plentiful, making it easy for residents to reach any part of the city. The area is well traveled by taxicabs as well.
