Soaring high-rises. Bustling streets. Vast urban beaches. This isn’t the Loop or River North; it’s Edgewater, a lakefront neighborhood on Chicago’s Far North Side. Edgewater is one of Chicago’s largest and most densely populated neighborhoods, due in large part to the long chain of tall high-rise apartment buildings on Edgewater’s eastern edge, known as Edgewater Beach.

Edgewater is more than just an impressive skyline, though. West of the Edgewater Beach, mid-rises, low-rises and single-family homes spread out beneath canopies of tall trees. Small businesses thrive on the major commercial arteries of Broadway, and Clark, Ashland, and Devon avenues. The neighborhood is very ethnically and economically diverse, and it’s also home to one of Chicago’s largest international populations, with large groups of immigrants from Africa, India and Eastern Europe. Education levels are above average for Chicago, with almost one-third of Edgewater residents having received at least a bachelor’s degree.

Housing Stock

The majority of Edgewater residents are renters, including the large population of senior citizens living on fixed incomes. Only about one-third of the homes in Edgewater are owner-occupied. Generally speaking, Edgewater condominiums are a bargain compared to similar homes located further south, in Uptown and Lake View.
