Pilsen Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Pilsen

Storefront art galleries, the resonance of church bells on Sundays, and bicycle-powered Mexican food-carts are all part of the charm of this diverse, lower west side Chicago neighborhood. Because of its largely Hispanic population, Pilsen boasts a large number of Mexican taquerias, cantinas and grocery markets with Spanish names, selling customary dishes and imported items.

And who could forget the incredible annual festivals that celebrate important Latin-American holidays such as Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and Fiesta del Sol (Festival of the Sun).

While community officials lobby to secure sections of Pilsen on the historical district register, new development and rehabilitation are transforming other parts of the neighborhood into a contemporary place to live. Either way, a strong cultural heritage and equally solid community foundation, are the backbone of this wonderful Chicago neighborhood.

Pilsen Real Estate

Thanks to its thriving artist and Hispanic community, with its outdoor murals and prolific gallery events, the neighborhood is undergoing a shift in terms of Pilsen real estate.

There has been a lot of debate and discussion of gentrification in the area, with the local alderman working to establish a historic district that would give tax breaks to Pilsen homeowners. At the same time, gut-rehabilitation and some new construction of Pilsen condos has been good for the neighborhood's real estate values. Many of the newly built condos are impressive in size and character, commanding a higher price than neighboring single-family homes with a little more wear and tear.
