Old Town Triangle Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Old Town Triangle

Offering glimpses of what life was like before Chicago blossomed into a cosmopolitan metropolis, Old Town Triangle is a tiny historic neighborhood that embraces an old-fashion character and charm. This triangular area, just north of North Avenue and west of Clark Street, is one of few to have escaped the grid pattern street layout that became standard as the city was rapidly reconstructed after the Great Chicago Fire. Navigating through the looping one-ways and narrow passages, reminiscent of the winding streets of London, is second nature for Old Town Triangle residents. But anyone else shouldn't be surprised to find the nonsensical system of roads a bit perplexing at first. In fact, Old Town Triangle is one of the most sought-after addresses in Chicago. Three- and four-story residences that go for a million dollar-plus are commonplace here and the neighborhood's proximity to both the lake and downtown add to its already irrefutable appeal.

Old Town Triangle Real Estate

The Old Town Triangle is a family-oriented, relatively low-density neighborhood with an abundance of historic character. Because it was granted historic landmark status in the late 1970s, many of the buildings in the vicinity date back to the 19th century. Brick row house and stone townhomes dominate the residential avenues along with "workman's cottages" and three- and four-story condominium buildings, plus some high-rises along Clark Street. Due to the neighborhood's historic designation, most of the homes maintain a vintage aspect, but some new construction homes have added a fresh appeal in recent years.

With beautifully landscaped lots, winding tree-lined streets, gorgeous residential properties and an atmosphere that welcomes starter families, young working adults and long-established residents alike, Old Town Triangle is a desirable place to live, and as such, is in very high demand. The real estate here is split between detached single-family homes and multi-unit dwellings. Sharing similar prices as the surrounding Lincoln Park neighborhood, homebuyers will find a range of property values throughout the area that suit various budgets and living preferences.

Living in the Old Town Triangle holds a special pride that ties neighbors together and forms lasting bonds. You'll see people out on their patios or stoops chatting with passersby, parents pushing their children in the swings at the playlot with other parents, and dog owners convening at the dog park with both their two-legged and four-legged friends. And don't be surprised if your street is temporarily closed down for a day in lieu of a neighborhood block party, complete with picnic tables, games, live band and lots of home cooked dishes to pass.
