One of Chicago's
most accessible areas, Lakeview
residents love the quiet residential feel while also having quick and easy access to shopping, a thriving nightlife and entertainment scene, and what locals claim as the best dining district in the city.
Lakeview sits a mere 10-minute walk from the shores of Lake Michigan, three miles from the Loop
and lies nestled between West Diversey Parkway, North Ravenswood
Avenue and West Irving Park Road. A neighborhood with historic charm mingled with modern high-rises, the real estate marks the most coveted addresses in the city, whether you seek a detached, single-family home, a townhouse or a slice of one of the many high-rises.
The community features a mix of families, retirees and young professionals, though the average age of residents stays in the low 30s. Locals take advantage of the community spirit across a variety of venues from the endless supply of pubs and taverns to a wide network of theater, music venues and community events.
Lining the streets in residential areas, you find plenty of trees, potted plants and small, landscaped yards. Rather than feeling cramped, though, the maximized spaces here build on the sense of community that draws residents together.
