West Lakeview is a quiet, tree-lined oasis, conducive to family living that also boasts some of the best antique retailers in the Midwest. The supply of single-family homes, two- and three-flats and courtyard condominiums offer West Lakeviewers an assortment of architectural housing styles and comfortable living spaces. Contemporary lofts and condos present modern, urban floor plans and new amenities, while the long-established, brick residential buildings and single-family flats afford more traditional units with old-fashioned appeal. The shopping scene in West Lakeview is exclusive to antique sellers, but the dining environment offers a fresh take on mixing food and entertainment with a bunch of kitchen/stage combos that draw always draw a crowd. Speaking of stage performances, West Lakeview has its own neighborhood production house where folks go to catch live music and theatrical acts and the occasional artsy film screening.
