Located between Uptown and Rogers Park on Chicago's Far North Side, Edgewater was once a playground for Chicago's early 20th century elite. Today, the stately mansions and posh hotels have largely been replaced by high-rises with spectacular lake views and easy access to beaches and parks. The neighborhood offers excellent access to trains and public transportation, and Loyola University is also nearby.
Originally a part of Lake View Township, Edgewater was originally comprised of orchards and thick forests. However, in the 1880s, development began, and the population quickly ballooned from 2,000 to nearly 50,000. In response to the increased population demand, the area was annexed by the City of Chicago in 1889. In recent times, the development of high-rise condominiums has led to a revival in the area, as well as the extension of Lake Shore Drive. Today, Edgewater is made up of the neighborhoods of Andersonville, Broadway, Edgewater Glen, Sheridan Road and Edgewater Beach.
Many large homes and classic apartment buildings remain in Edgewater, and rehabs as well as new construction and investment properties offer good value. The housing stock ranges from greystone three- and six-flats to courtyard buildings and high-rises. The average sales price of a single-family home in Edgewater Park in 2014 was $659,071.
The area is served by the Chicago Public Schools system, which offers public education to children in grades K-8. Alternative schooling is available at various Catholic and private schools located in and around the community. The CTA offers ‘L’ train service along the Red Line, and Metra service is available along the North Line. Additionally, the CTA operates dozens of bus routes which run through the neighborhood.
Moderate housing prices along with proximity to public transportation and the lakefront make this area very attractive to people of all ages, income levels and backgrounds. Residents can enjoy the beach, the park, lively cafes, restaurants, antique shops and theatres. Edgewater also has a strong network of community-based organizations.
