Old Town
Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Old Town Overview

Old Town consists of: Old Town Triangle.

Distinguished by a captivating past that lingers in the occasional brick alley, the thriving commercial district along Wells Street, and the faint toll of bells from St. Michael's Church, Old Town is a historic Chicago neighborhood, reborn into the 21st century with an ardor that has captured many people's interest as an enchanting place to live and a safe environment to raise a family. Old Town's beautiful residential blocks, lined with century-old grey- and brownstone walkups, are broken up by the flurry of activity along the neighborhood's central thoroughfare. Old Town boutiques are known for their specialty items, local designer wares and one-of-a-kind fashions for you and your home. Tucked in among the awning-covered storefronts are popular dining spots that are regular stops for in-town celebrities. In the summer, Old Town explodes with fun and excitement as folks come from all around to visit the neighborhood street festivals, which are among the most beloved in Chicago.

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.
