North Center

Don’t let its literal name fool you! North Center is a charming urban neighborhood, offering quiet residential streets tucked away from the hustle of the city, with easy access to great shopping and restaurants along Lincoln Avenue and in sub-neighborhood, Roscoe Village. Originally a part of the city’s industrial expansion – an area that was once home to many factories and brickyards, North Center stretches from Montrose Avenue to Diversey Avenue, butting up to the Chicago River on its west end. 

Housing Stock

North Center boasts a wide variety of desirable real estate options that range from stately Victorians and traditional homes with welcoming front porches to modern, loft-style condos and stone walk-ups. Sidewalks and tree-lined lawns are well maintained and most blocks have a great deal of curb appeal. In contrast to much of Chicago, North Center has easy street parking, as well as many properties with private garages. Comprised mainly of single-family homes dating to the early 20th century, there is also a smattering of two-flats, rehab condos and traditional townhouses to be had. More grown-up than neighboring Lakeview, North Center is a great place to graduate to home ownership or start a family.
