North Center

Laid back and family-friendly.

Welcome to North Center

Anchored by the intersection where Irving Park Road meets Damen and Lincoln Avenues, the neighborhood was originally settled by early European immigrants arriving in Chicago. Today, you’ll find plenty of quieter, family-friendly residential blocks surrounded by a solid mix of dining, entertainment, and retail options along the neighborhood’s main drags.

The Neighbors

A mix of young professionals and families.

The Lifestyle

Clean, cozy, and pedestrian-friendly, the neighborhood has plenty to offer residents with its boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants. Grab a beer at Half Acre Beer Company or one of the city’s best burgers at The Bad Apple. For those that want to get outside, head to the Hamlin Park pool in the summer, Revere Park for its multiple sports leagues for kids and adults alike, or rent a kayak and cruise the north branch of the Chicago River at the Jeanne Gang designed WMS Boathouse at Clark Park.

Unexpected Appeal

Looking to catch a show? Great entertainment venues abound whether it's live music at Martyr’s or Beat Kitchen or neighborhood theatre at Bughouse or Straw Dog Theater Company.

The Market

A mix of two and three-flats, vintage single-family homes, and a variety of new construction options.

You'll Fall in Love With

Proximity to downtown attractions via the Brown and Purple Lines yet far enough from the hustle and bustle to enjoy the zen of the neighborhood.
