Uptown Real Estate

An historic neighborhood, Uptown's tree-lined streets are filled with landmark mansions as well as condominiums and an array of homes fitting most styles and budgets. Uptown has become increasingly popular with young working adults and middle income families who want to live lakeside without paying the higher Near North Side prices.

In the 1900s, many of the mansions and apartment buildings were converted into affordable housing, upsetting their original charm and splendor. In an effort to beautify and salvage the heritage of this Chicago neighborhood, many of Uptown's buildings have since been renovated and restored to their original glory.

The neighborhood is continuing to grow alongside these renovations, as are the property values. Uptown real estate is made up of mid-rise courtyard condos, vintage apartment buildings, modern lofts and some single-family townhomes.
