Armour Square

Community Area: Armour Square

Chinatown: An eight-block area around the intersection of Cermak and Wentworth Avenues on Chicago's Near South Side, Chinatown is one of Chicago's most colorful neighborhoods, where Chinese heritage is a part of daily life. The community has been a haven for Chinese immigrants moving to Chicago since 1905, and is today the heart of Chinese culture in Chicago as well as a popular destination among tourists, who want to experience authentic Chinese cuisine and stroll the stores along Wentworth Avenue.

While space for new housing in Chinatown Real Estate is limited, a large-scale redevelopment is currently underway and includes plans to bring new-construction town homes and condominiums to the area. Buyers also can find existing two- and three-flats and older single-family homes that are more typical of the area.

From oriental grocery stores and medicine shops to traditional services and dozens of restaurants, Chinatown connects visitors and residents to China itself through an unparalleled array of cultural offerings. Landmarks such as the Chinatown Gate, Nine Dragon Wall, and Chinese gardens and Ping Tom Park along the Chicago River lend an air of far eastern charm to the community. Likewise, events such as the Chinese Autumn Moon Festival, Chinatown Summer Fair and the annual Chinese New Year parade, create an ongoing celebration of Chinese heritage in the neighborhood.
