We all know when summer is in full swing in Chicago. There’s sun, beach days at the lake, and the most noticeable sign of them all: construction. While much of the construction we see consists of little things like fixing potholes and digging up old water lines, one of the major sources of activity stems from both development and redevelopment projects.

But beyond adding driving time to your daily commute, what could major development projects mean for you? A few things.

First off, these major projects often become attractions that reach residents, visitors beyond the neighborhood, and tourists. Development projects can give existing and newly formed businesses an opportunity to set up shop in up-and-coming and established Chicago neighborhoods. They also can become catalysts for rising home and rental prices.

Major development efforts in Chicago are full of complexities that can leave you with a few lingering questions. Whether you want to stay up-to-date on changing property values or take note of new recreational green spaces, Real Group RE has you covered.

Even among the many eclectic, ever-changing neighborhoods that make up Chicago, Albany Park truly stands out.

For example, where else could a casual stroll walk you past delicious restaurants, serving up everything from world-famous falafel to authentic tacos to absolutely delectable Korean meats and veggies?

Where else could you take in works like those of the Albany Park Theater Project, an incredible year-round theater with a social justice bent, creating art for young people, by young people?

One of 77 officially designated community areas in Chicago, Albany Park is located on the northwest side of the city, bounded roughly by Montrose Avenue to the south and Foster Avenue to the north. We’ve barely scratched the surface about everything that Albany Park has to offer. To explore the neighborhood further, here are a few resources worth checking out:

Interested in buying or selling a house or condo in this hotbed of cuisine, culture, and commerce? Here are the Albany Park market conditions you need to know right now:

The world’s first air conditioning system was developed in 1902 - and prior to that, Chicagoans resorted to some pretty extreme measures to keep cool (like, you know, submerging their heads in ice buckets).

Today, we have a few more options when it comes to beating the heat, especially during the long summer months.

From taking advantage of our local waterways to seeking out a chilly sweet treat, here are seven ways that Chicagoans can keep cool, even as the temperature rises:

1.) Head to the Beach (or River)

One of the advantages of living around Chicago? The gorgeous blue water and sandy beaches of Lake Michigan are never more than a stone’s throw away!

There are miles and miles of beautiful lakefront spots worth checking out when the weather heats up, with most accessible no matter what neighborhood you call home.

Even better, there is no shortage of things to do during your day at the lake. From splashing in the water, to lounging under an umbrella, to grabbing a frosty drink from a waterfront bar or restaurant, there are plenty of ways to keep cool, whatever the weather.

Plus, if you don’t feel like making your way to a beach, you still have other options! Navy Pier is a beloved tourist destination, full of some amazing sites and tasty bites. And the world-famous, award-winning Riverwalk is another great place to stay cool, whether that means hopping on a boat, laying under the shade of the iconic Chicago skyline, or just hanging out in the gentle breeze.

2.) Take a Dip in a Local Pool

Want to enjoy some time in the water without hitting the beach? Why not make your way to one of the many pools around Chicagoland?

The Chicago Park District manages 49 outdoor pools, 28 indoor pools, and runs 14 pools connected to public schools, which offer community programs and events. The Park District’s website is a great way to find a pool near you, as well as a resource for finding opening and closing schedules, accessibility information, and more.

Plus, there are other local watering holes worth looking into, as well. Plenty of gyms and community organizations around town offer access to pools, with a membership.
