Goose Island

Community Area: Near North Side

Surrounded by the Chicago River on the city’s North Side, Goose Island is in the midst of a major revival.

The 160-acre island has captured the attention of real estate developers and investors who have plans to transform the industrial hub into a vibrant destination for businesses and residents alike. Goose Island’s beginnings date back to the mid-1850s, when William B. Ogden, Chicago’s first mayor, commissioned the dredging of the canal presently known as the North Branch Canal.

Industrialization quickly followed thanks to the island’s access to water. Over the last several years, some of the island’s industrial buildings have been adapted and repurposed to meet the needs of modern businesses and their office workers. Wrigley’s Global Innovation Center is located here along with other businesses including CB2.

With its prime location, it’s easy to see why Goose Island is garnering so much attention. The patch of land is surrounded by a number of thriving residential neighborhoods including Lincoln Park, Bucktown, Wicker Park, and Old Town, providing convenient access to a variety of shops, restaurants, and entertainment.
