Hyde Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Hyde Park

Hyde Park is home of the prestigious University of Chicago and the Museum of Science and Industry. This once prosperous hotel and lakeside resort area on Chicago's south side is quickly returning to its former glory with new residential development and scenic waterfront landscapes. The breathtaking sliver of shoreline along Lake Michigan is usually speckled with walkers, joggers, bikers and stroller-pushers, while the museum grounds teem with visitors from around the world. The rest of Hyde Park accommodates residents and students with a diverse mix of restaurants, bookshops, historic landmarks and several seasonal events, bike tours and neighborhood street festivals. Throughout Hyde Park are stunning vintage buildings and treasured architectural gems, some designed by famous architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe.

Hyde Park Real Estate

Dubbed as 'Hot Hyde Park' by the Chicago Sun-Times and listed as a Money Magazine's 'top neighborhood' in 2002, this once suburban area has made a name for itself as a desirable place to settle down and purchase a home.

The pairing of green space and culture in Hyde Park is a utopian existence for any big city dweller. It has a low crime rate and top-notch schools, making it attractive for families and soon-to-be parents who are looking for a new home. Hyde Park's continued upswing has created a huge demand for new development and rehabbed housing for the busy single working adult, as well as the recently retired and starter family. The price of property in the Hyde Park neighborhood, although rising steadily, is considerably lower than homes north of the Loop. You get more for your money, in terms of space, and all the modern amenities of a 21st century lifestyle when it comes to Hyde Park real estate. And you're still only six miles from downtown excitement and commerce. The Chicago Tribune published an article discussing the redevelopment of communities surrounding Hyde Park and noted that the south side has enticed many new homebuyers from the area as well as from out of state. Some of Hyde Park's most recognized residents, then and now, include Hugh Hefner, Muhammad Ali, and U.S. Senator Carol Mosley Brown. World-renowned architects such as Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright designed many of the buildings in the neighborhood still standing today.
