A neighborhood in the midst of a cultural renaissance, Bronzeville's buildings which date back to the magnificent 1920s are being restored, preserved and taking their place on historic building registries. Open spaces, architectural renovation, renewed interest in the arts, and a cluster of historical landmarks are key to this Chicago neighborhood's intriguing allure.
In Bronzeville, it seems every other corner houses a historical building, a monument, a nationally documented landmark, or a gorgeous public park. The sense of ancient beauty locked into the details of these brick buildings, stone sculptures and wide boulevards is carried through the rest of Bronzeville's architecture.
Current real estate rehabilitation projects are changing the face of Bronzeville's residential areas. In razing the dense construction of the Robert Taylor Projects, a cluster of high-rise apartment buildings, large expanses of land are opening up for fresh new developments in and near Bronzeville. However in the midst of modern condominiums, historical brownstones, ornate Victorians and stately townhomes remain a staple of Bronzeville's housing selection.
Generally speaking, condos in Bronzeville start in the low $100,000s for a one-bedroom and can reach up to the mid-$400,000s for something with more space. These include vintage brick flats and new-construction mid-rise units with luxury amenities and upgrades. Three-bedroom Bronzeville townhomes range between $400,000 and the upper $600,000s, and a three-bedroom detached single-family home can be even less for an older one-story house although many of the new model or rehabbed places are in the mid $300,000s to mid $500,000 range. Several sought-after Bronzeville streets like King Drive are lined with sought-after properties that well surpass the million dollar price tag.
