Lincoln Park, one of Chicago's most sought-after neighborhoods, is located just 2 miles north of downtown and bordered by North Avenue, Diversey Parkway, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. The community offers an appealing blend of active retail streets, urban college campuses, and narrow tree-lined residential blocks.
Smaller townhomes and vintage condominiums still offer buyers an affordable entrée into Lincoln Park, but prices rapidly escalate for rehabs and new construction. The average single-family home in Lincoln Park costs over $1 million, and several new mansions are commanding multi-million-dollar prices. Around DePaul University buyers can also find loft condominiums in converted factories and warehouses. On its eastern edge, Lincoln Park features beautiful high-rise buildings with breathtaking views of the lake, park, and city.
Lincoln Park is home to two major museums, DePaul University and one of the nation's oldest zoos, the Lincoln Park Zoo. The community's amenities, location, and housing options attract everyone from young, first-time homebuyers to local celebrities and CEOs. With its mix of city parks, restaurants, bars, theaters and top schools, Lincoln Park is virtually unrivaled among urban neighborhoods in the U.S.
