Why Lakeview?

Lively and accessible, Lakeview is the perfect blend of everything Chicago has to offer. Not only is the neighborhood home to the legendary Chicago Cubs baseball team and their iconic ballpark, Wrigley Field, but it's also the spot for a wide array of nightlife and entertainment.

For those looking for something scenic, Lakeview lives up to its name, offering residents gorgeous views of Lake Michigan with easy access to the Lakefront Trail. It's also host to Chicago's annual LGBTQ Pride Parade, and Lakeview's chunk of Halsted Street is home to numerous LGBTQ resources and support centers.

Lakeview is the second largest ward in the city, with a population of more than 98,000 folks - a group that once included Charlie Chaplin, among other famous film and music stars. Here are a few handy resources for learning more about Lakeview:

Lakeview's Current Condo Market 

1. The Average Sales Price of a Lakeview Condo is Balancing Out After Historic Highs

In 1887, an architect who was to become a giant of 19th-century architecture, William LeBaron Jenney, designed this extraordinary home. Unlike many of the other superb homes in the area, the original details and proportions have been maintained or recreated in every room. The originally carved stairway situates the large foyer on the first floor to the formal dining room, living room, sun porch, music room, office, breakfast room, kitchen, and mudroom. The new gourmet kitchen, breakfast room, and office space were designed and constructed to complement the original spirit of the home. A mudroom leads to the professionally landscaped yard, which comes complete with detached garage. The second floor has a master suite, with sitting room, fireplace, dressing area, and a new bath. Also on the second floor, you'll find two bedrooms, adjacent to a heated porch overlooking the yard, and a full bath. The third floor has two bedrooms, a gym, galley kitchen, laundry, and new full bath. On the lower level, workroom, wine cellar, and laundry room. This home prominently sits on a 70'x250' parcel in the nationally known Kenwood Neighborhood.
