Named for the public square at its heart, Logan Square is located north of Humboldt Park and west of Bucktown on Chicago's Northwest Side. While the community has long been home to a diverse ethnic, working-class population, Logan Square has been discovered in recent years by an influx of artists, students, professionals and families attracted to the area's bohemian lifestyle, relatively affordable housing, and easy access to the Loop via the CTA Blue Line.
Logan Square is characterized by tree-lined boulevards and large bungalow-style homes, and also boasts elaborate mansions along historic Logan and Kedzie Boulevards. However, the recent influx of buyers to the area has triggered a boom of residential development, including condominiums, lofts, town homes, three-flats and single-family homes at a variety of price points.
While Logan Square is surrounded by some of Chicago's trendiest areas for nightlife, including Bucktown and Wicker Park, the area has its own low-key entertainment district featuring locally owned restaurants, bars and bistros. The work of the many artists and musicians who live in Logan Square can be sampled at local coffee shops, lounges, cafes and theatres that help fuel the community's artistic vibe.Bucktown / Wicker Park:
Within the past decade, Bucktown/Wicker Park has emerged as one of the most exciting neighborhoods in Chicago
and one of the trendiest in the country. Located around the six-corner intersection of North, Damen, and Milwaukee, Bucktown/Wicker Park boasts a thriving artist community that hosts the annual Around the Coyote arts festival. But Bucktown/Wicker Park has also grown popular with young urbanites who enjoy the energy and diversity of this North Side neighborhood.
Bucktown real estate and Wicker Park real estate feature a variety of housing styles and price ranges. Condos take the form of vintage walk-ups, rustic lofts and new-construction three-flats and mid-rises. Single-family homes range from smaller cottages and bungalows (often prime candidates for tear-downs) to gut-rehabbed greystones and eye-popping multi-million-dollar new construction. The Wicker Park District features a number of historic 19th century mansions that also fetch top dollar.
A Saturday stroll up Damen Avenue takes you past hip cafes, independent bookstores, raucous bars, expensive boutiques, hole-in-the-wall art galleries, yoga studios and peaceful city parks. The neighborhood has become a mecca for shoppers in search of the hottest New York and L.A. fashions, and for foodies in search of a variety of cuisine from French bistro to sushi. Bucktown and Wicker Park are equally adored by tattooed punk rockers and stroller pushing moms, and everyone seems to get along just fine. Another reason to love Bucktown/Wicker Park is its incredibly convenient location. The CTA Blue Line takes residents into the Loop in less than 10 minutes and out to O'Hare Airport in a half-hour. Bucktown/Wicker Park is also right off the Kennedy Expressway for easy access to the city and suburbs
